AN ACT to amend the administrative code of the  city  of  New  York,  in
  relation to sidewalk shed permit renewals

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Section 3314.20 of the New  York  city  building  code,  as
added by chapter 520 of the laws of 2015, is amended to read as follows:
  3314.20  SIDEWALK  SHEDS. No [scaffolding] SIDEWALK SHED permit issued
for construction projects on public housing developments provided by the
New York city housing authority shall be renewed unless the commissioner
determines that such [scaffolding] SIDEWALK SHED is being used  as  part
of  an  ongoing construction project. PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT IF REMOVAL
OF THE SIDEWALK SHED SHALL EXPOSE THE  PUBLIC  TO  POTENTIAL  HARM,  THE
COMMISSIONER  SHALL  ISSUE  A  ONE-TIME  RENEWAL  OF  SUCH  PERMIT FOR A
ONE-YEAR PERIOD. The commissioner shall promulgate such rules and  regu-
lations  as  shall  be  necessary  to  implement  the provisions of this
section.
  An "ongoing construction project" shall mean any construction  project
during  which  persons  employed in construction work are utilizing such
[scaffolding] SIDEWALK SHED at least two days per week, or have utilized
such [scaffolding] SIDEWALK SHED for at least two days per week  at  any
time  over  the course of the six months immediately preceding a request
to renew a [scaffolding] SIDEWALK SHED permit.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately and  shall  be  deemed  to
have  been in full force and effect on and after the date chapter 520 of
the laws of 2015, took effect.
