A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to assessing organizations and individuals who have been issued permits for the use of athletic fields and courts under the jurisdiction of the parks department

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

                     Section 1. Chapter 1 of title 18 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 18-156 to read as follows:

§ 18-156 Review for athletic field permit applicants. a. The commissioner shall conduct an assessment of any applicant who has applied for any permit for the use of an athletic field or court under the jurisdiction of the commissioner for a fifth consecutive year after having been issued a permit for the previous four consecutive years to determine whether such applicant has conducted any action that may preclude such applicant from being issued a new permit. Such assessment shall include, but not be limited to:

1. A records review by the department of whether the applicant violated any rules of the department, permit conditions or engaged in any other illegal activity while present on the field or court for which previous permits had been issued;

2. An interview, in person or by telephone, between the department and the applicant, where the department shall discuss the findings made during the review of the applicant and allow  such applicant to respond to any finding that may preclude the requested permit from being issued; and

3. A written determination provided to the applicant that communicates each reason why such applicant shall or shall not be issued the requested permit.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 120 days after it becomes law, except that the commissioner of parks and recreation may take such measures as are necessary for its implementation, including the promulgation of rules, before such effective date.
