S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 4845 2013-2014 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E April 26, 2013 ___________ Introduced by Sen. LATIMER -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Cities AN ACT to amend the general city law, the town law, the village law and the real property tax law, in relation to age integrated communities THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative finding. The legislature finds that in many areas of the state there is inadequate availability of affordable senior citizen housing and/or housing integrated in communities with services for seniors including transportation, shopping, community facilities and residential neighborhoods. The housing inadequacy will get worse because the number of New York citizens over 65 years of age will increase 40 per centum over the 30 years between 1995 and 2025. As a result, the legislature finds that a senior citizen housing crisis exists. Therefore, the legislature hereby finds and declares that it is neces- sary for cities, towns and villages to foster housing opportunities for seniors through zoning and planning actions. This may include, but not be limited to, allowing mixed-use development with senior dwelling units compatibly integrated and facilitating new mixed-use development includ- ing planned unit developments within use and area requirements. S 2. Subdivision 3 of section 28-a of the general city law is amended by adding a new paragraph (d) to read as follows: (D) "MIXED-USE AGE-INTEGRATED HOUSING" SHALL MEAN THE DEVELOPMENT OR REDEVELOPMENT OF SINGLE SITES TO COMBINE RESIDENTIAL UNITS, COMMERCIAL SPACE AND/OR SERVICES FOR A MULTI-AGE POPULATION. PROVIDED, HOWEVER, AT LEAST THIRTY PER CENTUM OF THE TOTAL NUMBER OF RESIDENTIAL UNITS SHALL BE FOR INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE SIXTY YEARS OF AGE OR OVER AND AT LEAST TEN PER CENTUM OF THE TOTAL NUMBER OF RESIDENTIAL UNITS SHALL BE AFFORDABLE TO INDIVIDUALS AT SIXTY PER CENTUM OR LESS OF THE AREA MEDIAN INCOME. S 3. Paragraph (h) of subdivision 4 of section 28-a of the general city law, as amended by chapter 418 of the laws of 1995, is amended to read as follows: EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
