Res. No. 289

 

Resolution calling on the New York City School Construction Authority to more clearly communicate to the general public how city residents can submit potential school sites and the guidelines used by the School Construction Authority in considering whether a suggested school site meets the evaluation standards used by the authority.

 

By Council Members Vallone, Kallos, Gibson, Dromm and Levin

Whereas, The School Construction Authority was created by the New York State Legislature in December 1988 to build new public schools and manage the design, construction and renovation of capital projects in New York City’s more than 1,400 public school buildings; and

Whereas, The mission of the School Construction Authority is to design and construct safe, attractive and environmentally sound schools for children throughout the many communities of New York City; and

Whereas, The School Construction Authority is dedicated to building and modernizing schools in a responsible, cost-effective manner while achieving the highest standards of excellence in safety, quality and integrity; and

Whereas, The School Construction Authority’s Real Estate Division is responsible for finding adequate sites for new school construction and buildings that may be leased for school use; and

Whereas, The School Construction Authority’s Real Estate Division solicits from the general public potential school sites through its website; and

Whereas, Information on how the general public can submit potential school sites is not conspicuously posted on the School Construction Authority’s website; and

Whereas, The School Construction Authority’s Real Estate Division does not publish all guidelines and criteria it uses in considering a potential school site; now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Council of the City of New York calls upon the School Construction Authority to more clearly communicate to the general public how city residents can submit potential school sites and the guidelines used by the School Construction Authority in considering whether a suggested school site meets the evaluation standards used by the authority.
