Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

The proposed rule implements section 27-2051.1 of the New York City Administrative Code, which requires owners of residential dwellings to post a temporary notice with emergency information in the common area of the building prior to the arrival of a weather emergency, a natural disaster, or after being informed about a utility outage that is expected to last for more than 24 hours.  The sign must be removed after the weather emergency, natural disaster, or utility outage has ended. The law requires that the Department of Housing Preservation and Development publish a template that may be used by residential buildings for this purpose.  The rule provides such a template.
