Late March 2016, the New York City Council approved two (2) important amendments to Local Law 86, a solid step towards Mayor de Blasio’s ardent quest for New York City to emerge as the global leader in sustainability and resiliency - keeping the promises outlined in One City, Built to Last Plan developed by the Mayor’s Office of Long-Term Planning and Sustainability.
The Amendments, Int. Nos. 701A and Int. 721A, were drafted by committees chaired and guided through by Speaker of the New York City Council, Melissa Mark-Viverito and Council member Jumaane D. Williams respectively.
