Int 0504-2024 *Shaun Abreu  Establishing priority for sidewalk repairs at developments operated by the NYCHA.IntroductionThis bill would require the Department of Transportation (DOT) to give priority to senior-only housing developments operated by the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), followed by non-senior only NYCHA developments when determining the order of repairs to be made at sidewalks in front of or abutting properties, when the DOT is required by law or has otherwise undertaken to make these repairs. This bill would also require DOT to report to the Council and post on the DOT website a report detailing which sidewalks have been repaired and a proposed timeline of sidewalk repairs for NYCHA developments.   Not available Not available

Under the current law, council members and community boards whose requests for a traffic control device are denied are entitled to certain supporting documents underlying the determination but not to any particular timeline for completion of the study and determination. This amendment will speed up the current process overall by requiring this category of determinations to be issued within 60 days.   Not available Not available
