A Local Law to amend the New York city charter, in relation to requiring the department of information technology and telecommunications to post certain information regarding street closures and parking regulations on the internet.
 
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
      
Section 1.  Section 1072 of the New York city charter is amended by amending subdivisions o and p and by adding a new subdivision q to read as follows:
      o.  to  institute  procedures  to  assure  restrictions  of  access to information to the appropriate individuals, where such restrictions  are required by law; [and]
      p.  to perform such other responsibilities with respect to information technology and telecommunications  matters,  including  responsibilities delegated elsewhere by the charter, as the mayor shall direct[.]; and
  q.  to provide to the public at no charge on the city's website an interactive map, updated as often as practicable and necessary but not less than once per week, displaying the following:
1.      Permitted and approved street closures that do not allow for the passage of vehicular traffic on that street, including but not limited to closures for special events, crane operations and other construction work, film shoots and paving operations; and
2.      Parking regulations.
The information related to paragraph (1) of this subdivision shall be searchable and sortable by time, date and borough, except that street closures for crane operations, construction work and paving operations shall have the notation "subject to closure" during times where closure has been permitted and approved but where such closure may or may not occur on a particular day.  All information required by this subdivision shall be available on the city's website as soon as practicable but in no case less than one week prior to any such closure or change, except closures which were applied for or planned less than one week prior to any such closure or change, which shall be available on such interactive map within seventy-two hours of the permit and approval of such closure.  Where a permitted and approved street closure is due to a special event, the sponsor of the event with appropriate contact information shall be provided as part of such interactive map.  For the purposes of this subdivision, special event shall mean any street fair, block party or festival on a public street(s) where such activity may interfere with or obstruct the normal use by vehicular traffic of such street(s).
     ยง 2. This local law shall take effect one hundred eighty days after its enactment into law, except that paragraph 2 of subdivision q of section 1072 of the New York city charter shall take effect one year after its enactment into law.
