Program Launches To Accelerate Development!
Throughout May and just
in time for summer, applicants can meet after hours with plan
examiners to resolve objections and get their delayed projects
to approval. Email GetBackToBuilding@buildings.nyc.gov for an appointment.
Small Business Owners Get After Hours Assistance
On April 14th, the
Department began offering weekly after hour services to small
business owners. The program is a collaborative endeavor with Small Business
Services and a product of Small Business First, a comprehensive plan to streamline the City's regulatory requirements for small business owners.
Hours for Small Business Owners Night:
Tuesdays 4:00pm - 7:00pm
Thanks Small Business First!
To kickoff Small
Business Owners Night, Commissioner Chandler visited Red Pipe
Organic Cafe, a new business which benefited from the services
provided by Small Business First. Red Pipe Organic opened
last October after receiving assistance with plan reviews and
inspections from various agencies through the Small Business
First program. The cafe saved approximately twenty-one
days on opening!
Commissioner Addresses Construction Industry
Construction Safety Week 2015 launched on Monday, April 27 with our annual Build Safe │ Live Safe Conference
where Commissioner Chandler emphasized the Department's
obligation to safe construction in the city.
Once again tickets
for this daylong series of seminars were sold out! Department experts led dynamic presentations to
over three hundred attendees about the significance of adhering to
site safety regulations. Professional credit was
available. We hope to see you next year!
