Bill Green helping the Boyd

Also in Council today: Councilman Bill Green introduced a bill that would amend the city’s Historic Preservation Ordinance to allow the Philadelphia Historic Commission to designate the interior of buildings as historic.
Currently, the Commission doesn't have that jurisdiction.

"I just think it's a tool the Historic Commission ought to have in their tool kit," Green said.

Green said this additional power could help the Commission grant historic status to buildings like the Boyd Theater — the embattled 1920s movie palace on 19th and Chestnut which lacks historic protection.
