   Section 1. Section 693 of the general municipal  law,  as  amended  by
 chapter 88 of the laws of 2018, is amended to read as follows:
   §  693.  Area  designation.  An urban development action area shall by
 resolution be designated by the governing body,  or  by  the  commission

 such area is an eligible area. Any such designation shall be in conform-
 ance with the standards and procedures required for all land use  deter-

 June thirtieth, two thousand [twenty-one] TWENTY-FOUR,  for  up  to  six
 urban  development  action  area  projects  in  any  calendar  year, the
 construction of up to ninety dwelling  units  financed  by  the  federal
 government and restricted to occupancy by the elderly or by persons with
 disabilities  without  any change in land use permitted by local zoning,
 the governing body, or the commission where so authorized to act by  the
 governing body, may waive the area designation requirement.
   §  2.  Subdivision  5  of section 694 of the general municipal law, as
 amended by chapter 88 of the  laws  of  2018,  is  amended  to  read  as
