By The Speaker (Council Member Johnson) and Council Members Rodriguez, Levin, Kallos and Rivera

 

A Local Law in relation to designating community information centers in the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn during the course of the Canarsie Tunnel closure starting in 2019

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Definitions. a. For purposes of this section, the term “community information center” means a site where members of the public can obtain information on the status and progress of the Canarsie Tunnel closure starting in 2019 as well as referrals to resources to assist members of the public with concerns they may have as a result of the Canarsie Tunnel closure starting in 2019.

b. By November 1, 2018, in coordination with the metropolitan transportation authority, the department of transportation shall designate at least one community information center in each of the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn for the purpose of providing information on the Canarsie Tunnel closure starting in 2019 and resources for affected residents, commuters and businesses. Such community information centers shall be available at least during business hours and located in the geographic areas most affected by the Canarsie Tunnel closure starting in 2019 within the respective boroughs. 

§ 2. This local law takes effect immediately and is deemed repealed upon the earlier of three years after it becomes law or the announcement by the metropolitan transportation authority of the restoration of regular subway passenger service in the Canarsie Tunnel, provided that the commissioner of transportation shall notify the speaker of the council upon such announcement by the metropolitan transportation authority in order that the council may maintain an accurate database of the local laws of the city.
