Statement by Senator Brad Hoylman on the Passage of the NYCHA Real Property Public Review Act in the New York State Assembly
"The passage of the NYCHA Real Property Public Review Act (S.04641/A.06964), which I carry with Assembly Member Keith Wright, by the New York State Assembly is a necessary step towards empowering NYCHA residents and the broader communities to which they belong. This legislation will ensure those who live in and around NYCHA developments have a voice in the authority's land use decisions through the same fair and transparent public review process adhered to by city agencies. NYCHA residents and their neighbors deserve no less. I hope that the Senate will follow suit and pass this important legislation."
