Sarah Carroll - 2012 Sloan Public Service Award Winner

Title

Sarah Carroll - 2012 Sloan Public Service Award Winner

Description

Sarah Carroll is responsible for overseeing the nearly 10,000 applications submitted annually to the City's Landmarks Preservation Commission. Some are to grant a New York City building landmark status; others to modify, upgrade or alter an existing landmark; others to approve landmark-related projects. Carroll is praised by colleagues and applicants alike for her keen ability to help architects, developers, contractors and property owners navigate the complicated rules and regulations that govern New York City landmarks. Although applications to the Commission are often contentious, Carroll's unusual and admirable calm, sensitivity and impartiality have made her a singularly effective negotiator, helping broker compromises to which all sides can agree. Says one New York City architect, "Sarah's one of the most respected members of the preservation community. In an environment in which preservationists are pitted against developers in often heated opposition, she is uniquely gifted in being able to find middle ground solutions." Carroll says, "It is very important for the regulatory experience to be positive."

Landmark Preservation Commissioners rely on Carroll's advice. She has gained the Commissioners' respect and confidence through her strategic thinking, her scholarly knowledge of preservation and landmarks law and her ability to convey the intent of the client. Says Commission Chairman Robert Tierney, "In my many years in government, I have never worked with a more talented, committed and effective public servant than Sarah Carroll."
