Council Member Sponsors: 5
Summary: This 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.

A Local Law to amend the New York city charter, in relation to improving public information about concentrated siting of city facilities

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Section 204 of the New York city charter, as added by vote of the electors on November 7, 1989, is amended by adding a new subdivision a-1 to read as follows:

a-1. 1. Beginning in 2017, for every facility listed in the statement, the statement shall include the facility’s type, according to the illustrative listing of facility types in attachments a, b and c to the criteria for the location of city facilities as adopted pursuant to section 203. The statement also shall include a ranked index of the relative concentration of each such facility type in each community district, based on the ratio of facility capacity per thousand population in each community district, and, if the type of facility in question targets or serves a particular segment of the population, based on the ratio of facility capacity per thousand of such target population.

2. Beginning in 2017, for every facility listed in the statement, the statement shall include the facility’s use type according to the use codes and types used by the department of citywide administrative services to categorize city owned and leased properties. The statement also shall include, for every use code applicable to a facility listed in the statement, a ranked index of community districts based on the ratio of facility capacity per thousand population in each community district, and, if the type of facility in question targets or serves a particular segment of the population, based on the ratio of facility capacity per thousand of such target population.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 45 days after it becomes law.
