Int. No. 438

 

By Council Members Constantinides and Yeger

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to authorizing the painting of curb cuts

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Section 19-111 of title 19 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended to read as follows:

      § 19-111 Curbs and curb cuts. a. All curbs for the support of sidewalks hereafter to be  laid  shall be of the material or materials, dimensions and construction required in department specifications for  such  work,  which  shall  be prescribed by the commissioner and kept on file in his or her office.

b. Notwithstanding any other law, rule, or regulation, it shall be lawful for a property owner to paint a curb cut that was authorized pursuant to a permit from the department. However, this section shall not be construed to allow the painting of any curb for the purpose of unlawfully reserving parking. For the purposes of this section the term "curb cut" shall mean break in a curb to allow access from the roadway and across the sidewalk to a legal parking space within the property line.

§ 2. This local law shall take effect immediately.
