BILL NUMBER:S3584 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the multiple dwelling law, in relation to granting the commissioner of buildings of the city of New York the power to waive provisions of the multiple dwelling law with regard to the construction or alteration of multiple dwellings in such city PURPOSE: This proposed legislation would authorize the Commissioner of Buildings of the City of New York to vary or modify a provision or requirement of the Multiple Dwelling Law in its application to the construction or alteration of multiple dwellings in New York City, where strict compliance with such law would cause practical difficulties or unnecessary hardships. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one amends the Multiple Dwelling Law (MDL) by adding a new section 15 to provide that in a city of one million or more, the Commis- sioner of buildings of such city is authorized to vary or modify any provision of the MDL when compliance with the strict letter of the MDL produces undue hardship and a variation or modification would be neither contrary to the spirit and intent of the MDL nor contrary to the preser- vation of public health, safety, and welfare. Section two provides that this act shall take effect immediately.
