Citywide Statement of Needs FY 2023 & 2024

In accordance with Section 204 of the New York City Charter, the Mayor has submitted for review and comment, the Citywide Statement of Needs for Fiscal Years 2023 and 2024 (Click link to read full document.)

The purpose of this statement is to inform the public at the earliest possible stage of the City’s future needs for facilities and the specific criteria for selecting their locations; and to provide information about the existing distribution of City properties. The Statement of Needs, the Atlas of City properties and the Criteria for the location of City Facilities adopted by the City Planning Commission are now available for review by clicking this link. The Statement of Needs describes City facilities, that are proposed for closing or expansion in the next two (2) years. Community Board 14 will be submitting comments on these documents no later than March 28, 2022 (within 90 days of receipt.)

A public hearing has been scheduled to provide an opportunity for public comment on these important documents, prior to the next regular monthly meeting of the board as follows:

DATE: Monday, February 14, 2022

The Citywide Statement of Needs for Fiscal Years 2023 and 2024 (SON) as compiled by the Department of City Planning (DCP) is the latest in the series of annual reports required under Section 204 of the City Charter. This document is an important tool for aligning some of the Administration’s priorities – reducing inequalities, providing affordable housing, leveraging investments in neighborhood infrastructure and services – with agency capital projects and siting decisions that address community needs. Along with the Criteria for the Location of City Facilities (the Fair Share Criteria), the SON is part of a planning process in which communities are informed of the City’s needs for facilities and the specific criteria for selecting the locations of those facilities.
