Adopted Rules Content: 

The Commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) is authorized to promulgate rules regarding parking and traffic operations in the City by Section 2903(a) of the City Charter. The rules that DOT amends are contained within Chapter 4 of Title 34 of the Rules of the City of New York, relating to the “Traffic Rules and Regulations.”

DOT is establishing a pilot program in five specifically-identified pedestrian plazas, in order to bolster the viability of pedestrian plaza concessions where there are limited concession opportunities, limited partner capacity, and where activation is greatly needed for the overall management of the space.

This rule establishes a pilot program at (1) Fordham Pedestrian Plaza, (2) Myrtle-Cooper Pedestrian Plaza, (3) Myrtle-Wyckoff Pedestrian Plaza, (4) Diversity Pedestrian Plaza, and (5) Corona Pedestrian Plaza. The program will allow for no more than 20% of all seating in the pedestrian plaza where there is a concession to be reserved for patrons, subject to DOT review and approval. Additionally, the rule makes clear that this exclusive seating concept would not be considered a sidewalk café and would not require a sidewalk café license and revocable consent.

Specifically, the amendments to the DOT Rules being proposed are as follows:
• Section 4-16(b) would be amended by adding a new paragraph establishing a pilot program allowing for exclusive seating at up to 20% of all seating at five specifically-identified pedestrian plazas.
