Int 1490-2017 *Brad S. LanderLand UseFair Share - Improving public information about concentrated siting of city facilities.IntroductionThis bill would require the Mayor to include in the annual Citywide Statement of Needs two indications of how saturated an affected community district is with facilities similar to the ones listed in the Statement. First, for every category of facility described in the criteria for siting city facilities often called the “Fair Share criteria” (such as community health facilities, solid waste transfer facilities, and residential care facilities), the Statement would rank each community district by how concentrated it is with such facilities, in terms of the ratio of facility capacity the community district’s population (or to the population of the relevant subgroups). Second, for every facility listed in the Statement, the Statement would list the use code used by the Department of Citywide Administrative Services and would include a similar ranked index of community districts for each relevant use code.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
Int 1491-2017 *Brad S. LanderLand UseFair Share - Reducing overconcentration of city facilities in certain community districts.IntroductionThis bill would require the Mayor and City Planning Commission (CPC) to develop new criteria for siting city facilities under the City’s Fair Share process. The new criteria would prohibit siting a city facility, including emergency contracted facilities, in any community district highly concentrated with such facilities. High concentration means the top 10% of community districts with the highest ratios of capacity of similar facilities to district population. An agency proposing a siting could overcome the prohibition by demonstrating the facility serves particular needs of the community, except where need was created by unfair overconcentration of similar existing facilities. Sitings exempted from the prohibition based on need would be subject to a recorded vote by the CPC and subsequent Council review. Prohibited sitings would be reported to the Council, and the status of sitings made under the need-based exemption would be tracked on an online database updated annually.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available

Int 1492-2017 *Stephen T. LevinLand UseFair Share - Creating an online posting requirement for statements outlining consistency or inconsistency with criteria established for the siting of city facilities.IntroductionThis bill would require online posting of statements outlining consistency or inconsistency with criteria established for siting city facilities whenever an agency (1) submits an application to the Department of City Planning involving a new facility; (2) files a notice to acquire office space; or (3) enters into a contract regarding any other facilities subject to the criteria. This bill is needed in order to enhance the disclosure of information to the public about city facility initiatives that impact their communities.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
Res 1392-2017 *I. Daneek MillerLand UseFair Share - Create a uniform process for community notification and local input on the siting of any state or state-authorized facility in the city of NY and to review the distribution of such facilities already in place.Resolution Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
Int 1493-2017 *Antonio ReynosoLand UseFair Share - Improving community access to information about the siting of city facilities.IntroductionThis bill would require the Mayor to include additional geographic detail about proposed new or altered city facilities in the annual Citywide Statement of Needs that is created as part of the City’s Fair Share facility siting process. In addition, the bill would require agencies to provide affected community boards and borough presidents with additional notice if a proposed city facility was not identified with sufficient detail in the Citywide Statement of Needs but the city proceeds with the siting.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
Int 1494-2017 *Donovan J. RichardsLand UseFair Share - Including additional capital projects in the citywide statement of needs.IntroductionEvery year, the Mayor must produce a Citywide Statement of Needs relating to the opening, expansion, reduction, or closing of city facilities. Not every capital investment the City makes in neighborhoods and infrastructure, however, counts as a city facility. This bill would require the Mayor to add an appendix to the Statement of Needs consisting of a list and explanation of proposed capital projects anticipated for the next two fiscal years, which could include things such as property acquisitions and investments in streets, bridges and tunnels. The appendix would not include projects already listed in the Statement of Needs or capital projects relating to fencing vacant lots, filling sunken lots, or acquiring furnishings, machinery, apparatus or equipment.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
Int 1495-2017 *Deborah L. RoseLand UseFair Share - Creating an interactive online mapping tool of facilities required to be mapped in conjunction with the citywide statement of needs.IntroductionThe city strives to distribute facilities equitably under a process called “Fair Share,” but low-income communities are overburdened with certain types of facilities, such as waste transfer stations. Fair Share’s public disclosure tool—the Citywide Statement of Needs and its accompanying map—does not contain enough information geographic data to inform communities about facilities and where how communities compare to others. This bill would create an online mapping tool of city facilities subject to Fair Share as well as other facilities of interest to communities, including 1) federal and state health and social services facilities; and 2) private transportation and waste management facilities. Data used to create the mapping tool would be fully accessible to users for searches, content downloads and comparing community districts based on their relative concentrations of mapped facilities by use or type. Confidential information under state or federal law would be exempt from this bill.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
Int 1496-2017 *Helen K. RosenthalWomen's IssuesReporting on certain domestic violence initiatives.IntroductionAlthough crime in the City is at historic lows, domestic violence persists. Every day, the New York Police Department (NYPD) responds to over 700 domestic incidents. This bill requires the Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence (OCDV), in conjunction with the NYPD, to submit to the Mayor and Speaker of the Council and post on its website a report detailing information about the City’s new domestic violence initiatives. The report must include data on housing attorneys placed in Family Justice Centers and the results of efforts of such attorneys to assist survivors with legal matters related to housing, such as removing perpetrators from leases, transferring leases from perpetrators to survivors, and terminating leases without penalty. The report must also include data on chronic domestic violence cases and chronic offenders, NYPD outreach efforts to survivors, and NYPD practices to identify and track chronic offenders. OCDV is required to submit reports quarterly and annually.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
Int 1497-2017 *Rafael Salamanca, Jr.EducationRequiring the DOE to report on students in temporary housing.IntroductionThis bill would require the Department of Education (DOE) to publish an annual report on students in temporary housing. The report would include the number of students residing in shelters, the number of students living doubled-up, the rate of students residing in shelters of their school district and borough of origin, and the number of requests for a shelter transfer to be closer to school. The report would include information on students’ travel to school, including information on MetroCard and busing usage. The report would additionally include information broken down by community school districts receiving funding from the McKinney-Vento Act and Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
