A Local Law to amend the New York city charter, in relation to written responses by the board of standards and appeals

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

                     Section 1. Subdivision b of section 668 of the New York city charter, as amended by local law number 102 for the year 1977, is amended to read as follows:

b. The recommendation of a community board or borough board pursuant to subdivision a of this section shall be filed with the board of standards and appeals and a copy sent to the city planning commission. The board of standards and appeals shall conduct a public hearing and act on the proposed application. A decision of the board shall indicate whether each of the specific requirements of the zoning resolution for the granting of variances has been met and shall include findings of fact with regard to each such requirement. When the board of standards and appeals grants or denies an application for a variance or special permit, the board shall respond, as applicable, to any relevant recommendation filed with such board by a community board or borough board regarding such application. Inadvertent failure to comply with the preceding sentence shall not result in the invalidation of any board decision.

                     §2. This local law takes effect 180 days after it becomes law.
