The appointed coordinating agency would be required to take into account requests from council members, community boards, business improvement districts, community-based organizations, and others to annually develop a list of 10 areas that would benefit from inter-agency collaboration to address issues such as sanitation services, transportation problems, social services needs, public health issues, and public safety needs. With input from the agencies responsible for addressing such issues, the coordinating agency would create and execute plans to address the quality of life issues in the 10 areas, and submit reports detailing the progress made on the plans every 6 months to the individual or group who submitted the request for services and the council member representing the area and annual assessments to the Council.

Int. No. 1135-A

 

By The Speaker (Council Member Mark-Viverito) and Council Members Chin, Dromm, Rosenthal, Deutsch, Levin, Vallone and Kallos   

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to neighborhood support teams

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Chapter 1 of title 10 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 10-173 to read as follows:

§ 10-173 Neighborhood support teams. a. Definitions.  For the purposes of this section, the following terms shall have the following meanings:

Coordinating agency. The term “coordinating agency” means the agency designated by the mayor to coordinate and oversee implementation of the requirements of this section. 

Geographic area. The term “geographic area” means an area no larger than a community district. 

Quality of life condition. The term “quality of life condition” means a condition that has an adverse effect on the quality of life for residents and visitors in a geographic area, including but not limited to a condition involving sanitation, transportation, social services, public health, or public safety, as determined by the coordinating agency.

b. Commencing September 1, 2016, and on or before September 1 annually thereafter, the coordinating agency shall review requests from council members, community boards, business improvement districts, and any other sources as determined by the coordinating agency, and develop a priority list of no less than three geographic areas that the coordinating agency deems would benefit from inter-agency collaboration to address and improve quality of life conditions in such areas. The coordinating agency shall create and execute plans in coordination with the appropriate agencies to address the quality of life conditions in such geographic areas, which shall include but not be limited to visits to such areas and community meetings, provided that such plans in no way restrict any power or authority granted by law to a city agency or officer or employee of any city agency. On March 1, 2017, and annually thereafter, the coordinating agency shall report to the council and make publicly available online a written description of the implementation of such plans.

§ 2. This local law takes effect immediately.
