Summary: The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA), through its real estate division, is responsible for finding adequate sites for new school construction and buildings that may be leased for school use. The division employs several real estate firms to locate available land and buildings. This bill would require the mayor to create an interagency task force on school siting to identify potential city-owned properties for school siting and identify vacant lots that may be good candidates for school siting. The task force would author a report for the Mayor, Council, DOE and SCA, and provide updates as necessary.

§ 4-212 School siting task force. a. There shall be an interagency task force to review relevant city real estate transactions to identify opportunities for potential school sites.

6. The president and chief executive officer of the New York city school construction authority, and the president or chief executive officer of a local development corporation or other not-for-profit corporation, a majority of whose members are appointed by the mayor, that contracts with the city to provide or administer economic development benefits on behalf of the city, may participate in the task force as members at the invitation of the mayor and the speaker.

c. One member shall be designated as chairperson by the mayor after consultation with the speaker.

d. The task force shall consult with agencies or offices with jurisdiction over environmental and planning concerns as appropriate, and may consult with interested members of the public, including but not limited to parents of students currently enrolled in the city school district of the city of New York.

e. No later than July 31, 2019, the task force shall submit a report to the mayor, the speaker, the chancellor of the city school district of the city of New York and the president and chief executive officer of the New York city school construction authority on the results of its review pursuant to this section.
