By Council Member Dromm

Whereas, The New York State Education Law Section 2590-p provides for the development and approval, every five years, of a five-year educational facilities capital plan and amendments thereto; and

Whereas, The current five-year educational facilities capital plan covers the period from July 1, 2014 until June 31, 2019; and                     

Whereas, The next five-year educational facilities capital plan will commence on July 1, 2019 and cover the period from July 1, 2019 until June 30, 2024 (the “Plan”); and

Whereas, Pursuant to Section 2590-p of the New York State Education Law, the Chancellor of the New York City Public Schools (“the Chancellor”) prepared a proposed five-year educational facilities capital plan in November 2018 as well as a final proposed five-year educational facilities capital plan in February 2019; and

Whereas, On February 1, 2019, the Chancellor submitted to the Plan to the Council, which contains $17.01 billion in planned spending; and

Whereas, The Panel for Educational Policy approved the final proposed Plan on March 27, 2019; and

Whereas, Over the course of the last several months, the Council has engaged in extensive discussions and negotiations with the Department of Education (“DOE”) over the content and specifics of the proposed and final proposed Plan which have resulted in changes to the Plan’s content and additional specificity; and

Whereas, This proposed Plan provides $8.76 billion for the Capacity Program, which includes all elements of the Plan that result in new or replacement capacity for the educational system; and

Whereas, This proposed Plan also provides $5.18 billion for the Capital Investment Program, which is for the enhancement and repair of existing facilities to improve the quality of infrastructure of buildings and properties; and

Whereas, This proposed Plan also provides $3.07 billion for the Mandated Programs, which are projects required by law or City agency mandate; now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Council of The City of New York hereby approves the Five-Year Educational Facilities Capital Plan for 2020-2024 submitted by the Chancellor pursuant to section 2590-p of the New York State Education Law.
