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.
