Int. No. 1296-A

 

By Council Members Cumbo, Van Bramer, Palma, Barron, Vacca, Levin, Chin, Kallos and Crowley

 

A Local Law to amend the New York city charter, in relation to the percent for art program

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Subdivisions b and c of section 224 of the New York city charter, subdivision b as added by local law number 65 for the year 1982 and subdivision c as amended by a vote of the people at the general election of 1989, are amended to read as follows:

b. Works of art shall be provided for each capital project which involves the construction or the substantial reconstruction of a city-owned public building or structure the intended use of which requires that it be accessible to the public generally or to members of the public participating in, requiring or receiving programs, services or benefits provided thereat. [For the purposes of this section a police precinct house and a firehouse shall be deemed to be such buildings.]

c. An amount not less than one [per cent] percent of the first [twenty] fifty million dollars and one-half of one [per cent] percent of any amount in excess of [twenty] fifty million dollars of capital funds appropriated by the city for each such capital project, other than funds appropriated for the acquisition of real property, shall be allocated for works of art; provided, however, that this section shall in no case require, but shall not prohibit, the expenditure of more than [four] nine hundred thousand dollars for works of art for any capital project[;] nor more than the sum of [one and one-half] four million dollars for all works of art in any fiscal year. The mayor may exempt a capital project from the provisions of this section if in [his] the mayor’s sole judgment the inclusion of works of art as provided hereby would be inappropriate.

§ 2. This local law takes effect one year after it becomes law.
