Memo

BILL NUMBER:S7270

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 100 of the laws of 2013, relating to authorizing the reinstatement of prior approved work permits and waiving the requirements of section 35 and subdivision 2 of section 36 of the general city law as such provisions relate to rebuilding and repairing homes devastated by Hurricane Sandy in the city of New York, in relation to the effectiveness thereof

PURPOSE OF BILL: This bill allows those residing in Breezy Point to continue rebuilding their homes following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. Due to the unique layout of Breezy Point many homes do not have mapped street frontage which triggers a BSA hearing and ultimate sign off. This application and review process can typically take 6-12 months or more without the 2013 waiver. It is necessary to extend the waiver for an additional year so Breezy Point residents can continue to the process of rebuilding their homes and putting their lives back together.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

§ 1: Legislative Intent

§ 6: Extension of provisions to 2 years

§ 2: The Date the Act Shall Take Effect

JUSTIFICATION: The storms, rains and floods of Hurricane Sandy (Oct 29th 2012-Nov 3rd 2012) caused much devastation to residents of Breezy Point. General City Law requires applications that can take up to 12 months or more to be completed. That is too long for our residents to be without a home. They must be able to start rebuilding and have shovels in the ground as soon as possible. The extension of this bill continues progress made by those devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

PRIOR LEGISLATION HISTORY: Extender - Chapter 100 of the Laws of 2013

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
