Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

 

The purpose of these revised rules is to simplify the language in the Joint Living-Work Quarters for Artists rules in order to make them easier for the public to understand, update contact information for the agency, and clarify that electronic download of application materials is allowable.

 

Specifically, the proposed rules:

  • Replace DCLA’s prior address with DCLA’s current address;
  • Clarify that applicants may download application materials electronically;
  • Clarify the criteria used to determine whether an applicant is engaged in the fine arts; and
  • Revise rules to simplify language and make rules easier to understand.

 

The Mayor’s Office of Operations worked with the City’s rulemaking agencies, the Law Department and the Mayor’s Office of Management and Budget, to conduct a retrospective rules review of the City’s existing rules. The retrospective rules review identified those rules that will be repealed or modified to reduce regulatory burdens, increase equity, support small businesses, and simplify and update content to help support public understanding and compliance. This proposed rule amendment was identified through this initiative.

 

DCLA’s authority for these rules is found in section 1043 of the New York City Charter and section 276 of the New York State Multiple Dwelling Law.
