Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
 
Section 1. Declaration of legislative findings and intent. Due to increased awareness and questions from the people of the city of New York pertaining to the renaming and co-naming of streets, the Council believes it is appropriate to create a mechanism that will allow individuals to have biographical and/or background information available on the official city website that pertains to a renamed or co-named street.
§2.  Chapter 1 of title 25 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section, §25-102.2, to read as follows:
§25-102.2. Street Name Reporting a. Whenever a street is renamed or co-named pursuant to section 25-102.1 of this chapter, the city shall make biographical and/or background information about the person or entity for whom the street was renamed or co-named available on the official city website.
b. Such information shall be made available on the website within ninety days of the enactment of the local law which renamed or co-named the street.
§3. This local law shall take effect immediately upon its enactment into law and shall only be required for streets renamed or co-named after its enactment.
