STATEMENT OF BASIS AND PURPOSE

 

 

Under the Alternative Enforcement Program (AEP), the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) identifies distressed buildings in need of repair and systems replacement, and monitors progress by owners towards correction of Housing Maintenance Code violations, or undertakes correction of the violations itself. The New York City Council recently amended Administrative Code §27-2153 to authorize HPD to set the criteria used to select buildings for the program. As a result, HPD is amending the AEP rules to include these new criteria. The selection of the criteria is based upon five years of experience in enforcing the AEP. The new criteria are intended to better target buildings likely to benefit from inclusion in the AEP, use agency resources more effectively to improve the positive outcome for these buildings, increase the cost effectiveness of the AEP, and prevent buildings from reentering the program at a later date. An analysis of the effect of selection criteria on the inventory of buildings entering the program is set forth in HPD's report entitled, ''The Alternative Enforcement Program: 5 Year Report: 2007-2012," available on HPD's website. New criteria will be used for identifying buildings for participation in the program beginning January 31, 2013.

STATEMENT OF BASIS AND PURPOSE

 

The proposed rule amends the Department of Housing Preservation and Development's (HPD) rules relating to administration of loan programs and certain other municipality­ aided projects. Pursuant to New York City Charter §1802 and various federal and state statutes, HPD is empowered to perform a wide range of functions relating to both private and City-owned real property.

Statement of Basis and Purpose

 

Background

 

Under the lnclusionary Housing Program, in return for agreeing to keep the housing permanently affordable, owners receive a "bonus" in the form of additional developable floorarea that the owner can sell or transfer for construction on. other sites. In certain high value areas, properties that have received Public Funding within 15 years before agreeing to provide permanent lnclusionary Housing are eligible for a smaller bonus than those that have not.

 

 

Proposed Rule Summary:

 

       Excludes Mitchell Lama tax exemptions from the definition of "Public Funding" contained in Section 23-911 of the Zoning Resolution, thereby making properties with such exemptions eligible to receive more bonus floor area than is currently allowed.

 

       Permits preservation projects with Mitchell Lama tax exemptions to be treated the same as preservation projects with other tax exemptions that the Zoning Resolution already excludes from the definition of "Public Funding."

 

       Provides an incentive for the owners of Mitchell Lama housing companies to keep existing affordable housing developments permanently affordable rather than convert them to market rate housing.

 

       Decreases the need for public subsidies to preserve Mitchell Lama units.

Statement of Basis and Purpose

 

Administrative Code §27-2091 was recently amended by Local Law #6 of 2013 to provide that the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) may issue an order requiring a building owner to correct underlying conditions in a building that have caused or are causing a violation of the Housing Maintenance Code or of other State and local laws that impose requirements on dwellings.

 

The legislation authorizes HPD to set the criteria used to select buildings for issuance of such orders to correct underlying conditions. The rules target buildings that have recurring violations caused by infrastructure problems, where an owner repeatedly performs cosmetic repairs rather than addressing the underlying cause. The criteria in this rule are intended to focus on buildings that have recurring water teak and mold violations where owners have failed to address the impaired building system that is causing those violations. HPD expects to identify and issue these orders to approximately 50 such buildings per year, giving priority to buildings based on the number and severity of violations. HPD will not issue orders to one- or two- family buildings or to certain buildings that are subject to other enforcement actions by HPD or that may be the subject of a loan from HPD.

 

Under the legislation, an owner has a four-month window from the date of issuance of the order to correct the underlying conditions and remove violations from HPD's records. Owners may request a two-month extension by submitting specific documentation identifying the underlying condition and showing that the required work will be completed within the extended time period.

 

The rules also specify the process for an owner to have a building removed from the program through submission of proof of infrastructure repair and dismissal of violations, leading to the rescission of HPD's order. The Department may also rescind an order if the building is subject to another enforcement action by HPD or is the subject of a loan from HPD, or if the repair work was completed by HPD.
