A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring an agency designated by the mayor to maintain a database of the occupancy and vacancy of all community facility spaces

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Subchapter 1 of chapter 1 of title 3 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 3-119.1 to read as follows: 

§ 3-119.1 Database of community facility spaces. a. Definitions. For the purposes of this section, the term “community facility space” means any building or portion of a building designated for specified community facility uses pursuant to sections 12-10, 22-13, and 22-14 of the zoning resolution.

b. An agency designated by the mayor shall maintain a public online searchable database that shall include all community facility spaces within the city that are in existence as of the effective date of the local law that added this section and all locations within the city that are subsequently designated as community facility spaces. Locations that are subsequently no longer designated as community facility spaces shall be deleted from the database. Updates to such database shall be made within six months following any addition or change to the data in such database. Such database shall be posted on the city’s website, shall have the ability to produce reports by query, shall be published to the city’s open data portal, and shall include, but not be limited to, the following information:

1. The location of the community facility space, including the borough, community board district, block and lot number, and any commonly known name;

2. A brief description of the type of community facility space;

3. The name and address of any current occupants of the community facility space, or alternatively the status of vacancy; and

4. Any other information deemed relevant by the agency designated by the mayor to maintain such database.

c. No later than one year after the local law that created this section takes effect, and annually thereafter, the department of information technology and telecommunications shall certify to the agency designated by the mayor to maintain the searchable database established pursuant to this section that such database is substantially complete online and in the open data portal with respect to the categories of information required by this section.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 1 year after it becomes law, except that the agency designated by the mayor, as set forth in section one of this local law, and the department of information technology and telecommunications may take such measures as are necessary for the implementation of this local law, including the promulgation of rules, before such date.
