A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to an annual report on the progress of the Brooklyn Navy Yard master plan

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

     

Section 1. Section 22-821 of subchapter 2 of chapter 8 of title 22 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 222 for the year 2017 is amended to add a new definition of “Brooklyn navy yard development entity” in appropriate alphabetical order and to amend the definition of “contracted entity” to read as follows:

Brooklyn navy yard development entity. The term “Brooklyn navy yard development entity” means a not-for-profit corporation that contracts with the city to lease and/or operate the area encompassing block 2023, lots 1, 50 and 150 in Kings county, commonly known as the Brooklyn navy yard.

Contracted entity. The term “contracted entity” means 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 and expending city capital appropriations in connection therewith, except that such term does not include the Brooklyn navy yard development corporation [or any successor entity that becomes the lessee and/or operator of block 2023, lots 1, 50 and 150 in Kings county, commonly known as the Brooklyn navy yard].

§ 2. Subchapter 2 of chapter 8 of title 22 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 22-825 to read as follows:

§ 22-825. Brooklyn Navy Yard Master Plan Annual Report. In each contract executed on or after the effective date of this section between the department and a Brooklyn navy yard development entity, the commissioner shall require the Brooklyn navy yard development entity to submit an annual report to the mayor and the council of such entity’s progress toward achieving the goals articulated in its master plan. For the purposes of this section the term “master plan” means such entity’s plan for the overall utilization of the property encompassing block 2023, lots 1, 50 and 150 in Kings county, commonly known as the Brooklyn navy yard.

§ 3. This local law takes effect immediately.
