A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring the department of homeless services to provide community notification.

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1. Chapter 3 of title 21 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 21-316 to read as follows:

                     § 21-316 Community notification. a. Definitions. For the purposes of this section the following terms shall have the following meanings:

                     1. “Community board” shall mean the group of persons that represent the interests of a community district as defined by section 2800 of the New York city charter.

                     2. “Transitional housing” shall mean temporary emergency housing provided to homeless adults, adult families, and families with children by the department or a provider under contract or similar agreement with the department.

                     b. When the department enters into a contract for the development of transitional housing and any change to the contracted capacity or use of such transitional housing is sought through a contract modification, including, but not limited to, an increase of capacity or a change in the intended population to be housed in the transitional housing facility, the department shall provide written notice of such change to all parties who originally received notice of the transitional housing, including, but not limited to, the affected community board and council member within ten days of the comptroller’s registration of such contract modification.

§2.  This local law shall take effect immediately.
