Notice of Public Hearing and Opportunity to Comment on Proposed Rules 


What are we proposing? The Department of Buildings (DOB) is proposing to amend Section 101-03 of Chapter 100 of Title 1 of the Rules of the City of New York relating to fees for façade report filings.   

This rule was originally published in the City Record on 2/27/20, and was originally scheduled for an in person public hearing on 3/30/20 at 10 a.m. Due to the current health emergency, the public hearing for this rule is now being rescheduled as a virtual hearing, which may be accessed according to the information given below in this Notice.   

This Notice supersedes the hearing information for this rule posted on the NYCRules website. 

The text of the proposed rule may be viewed by clicking on the following link to DOB’s proposed rule page: https://www1.nyc.gov/site/buildings/codes/proposed-rules.page 

  • When and where is the hearing?  DOB will hold a public hearing on the proposed rule online. The online public hearing will take place at 11am on 6/1/20.

When joining the meeting choose either “Use computer for audio” or “Call in” for the audio portion of the public hearing.  If you choose the “Call in” option, the information needed to connect (phone number, Access Code and Attendee ID) will automatically be presented to you immediately after you join the Webex meeting. 

If you have low bandwidth or inconsistent Internet connection, we suggest you use the “Call-in” option for the hearing.  This will reduce the possibility of dropped audio and stutters.
