Int. No. 890-A

By Council Members White Jr., Comrie, James and Palma

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to regionally significant projects and empire zones.

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

                     Section 1.  Statement of legislative findings and intent.  Under Section 957(d)(i) of the General Municipal Law, certain business enterprises located outside the boundaries of an Empire Zone may still be eligible for Empire Zone benefits as a “regionally significant project” because the economic activity of such enterprise is of a nature that is encouraged by the State, and the Administrative Board of such Empire Zone authorizes the designation of such business as a regionally significant project.  The New York State Department of Economic Development and the South Jamaica Empire Zone Administrative Board have determined that Flying Food Group LLC, a manufacturer and food processing and packaging company serving 85 airlines and nationally known retail food chains is projected to create more than 100 new jobs and has been provisionally approved for Empire Zones benefits as a regionally significant project under Section 957(d)(i) of the General Municipal Law. 

§2. Chapter 7 of title 22 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding new section 22-719 to read as follows:

§22-719  Authorization for the designation of a regionally significant project. a. Pursuant to the provisions of article 18-B of the general municipal law, a business enterprise may be designated as a regionally significant project if the criteria set forth in paragraph i of subdivision d of section 957 of such article are met.

 b.  By a resolution of the South Jamaica empire zone administrative board, dated June 30, 2008, such administrative board, in accordance with the provisions of article 18-B of the general municipal law, supported the designation of Flying Food Group LLC, having federal employer identification number 36-4331472 and located at building 146, JFK International Airport, in the borough of Queens, as a regionally significant project.

c. Pursuant to the provisions of article 18-B of the general municipal law, such regionally significant project shall be as set forth as follows:

Flying Food Group LLC, having federal employer identification number 36-4331472  and at building 146, JFK International Airport, in the borough of Queens also known as Block: 14260  Lot: 1, in the borough of Queens.

§3.  This local law shall take effect immediately.
