Braunstein passes bill requiring agencies to improve communication on city projects


Bayside Assemblyman Edward Braunstein’s legislation to improve public communications and input on city projects was recently passed by the Assembly.

Braunstein announced Friday that his bill A.355-A was approved to require city agencies to provide advance notice to state elected officials and community boards regarding construction, acquisitions and other projects that will take place in their communities.

Notifications for various construction projects or designations in New York City are currently sent only to City Council members, borough presidents, and, only in select instances, to community boards.
