Thursday, September 15 from 9 a.m. to noon
At Steps of New York City Hall, City Hall Park, New York, NY 10007
The Housing Not Warehousing Act will add transparency and accountability to vacant public and private property in our neighborhoods. The bills in the Act:
– create a registry that all individuals and corporations holding their property vacant have to enter or pay penalties for failure to register,
– mandate the City perform an annual count of all vacant property in New York City, and
– require the City to compile a list of all city, state, federally, and authority-owned vacant property.
Join us and Picture the Homeless on September 15 on the steps of City Hall at 9AM and in the hearing room at 10AM. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to testify about the lot in your life!
