A Local Law to amend the New York city charter, in relation to community involvement in decisions of the board of standards and appeals.

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1. Subdivision 9 of section 666 of the New York city charter, as amended by a vote of the electors at the general election on November 4, 1975, and renumbered by local law number 49 for the year 1991, is amended to read as follows:

9. To afford an equal right to the city planning commission, community boards, and borough boards and lessees and tenants as well as owners to appear before it for the purpose of proposing arguments or submitting evidence in respect of any matter brought before it pursuant to the zoning resolution of the city of New York. In rendering a final determination on any matter before it in which any such party has proposed relevant arguments or submitted relevant evidence, the board shall refer to such arguments or evidence in its final determination and describe the extent to which the board considered such arguments or evidence in reaching its final determination, to the extent applicable. The board may categorize similar comments together and respond to such categories, provided that each such categorical response indicates the testimony to which it is responding.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 90 days after it becomes law.
