NEW YORK (AP) — The New York City Council has voted to limit Madison Square Garden's permit to operate at its current spot above Penn Station to 10 years.
The Council voted 47-1 on Wednesday on the 10-year limit.
The Garden had requested to operate at the site in perpetuity. The city planning commission recommended a 15-year extension.
Civic organizations are campaigning to move Madison Square Garden to another location so that Penn Station can be overhauled.
Kim Kerns, a spokeswoman for the Garden, noted that the arena is in the midst of a three-year renovation costing nearly $1 billion.
Kerns said Madison Square Garden has operated at its current site "for generations."
