Ung introduces legislation targeting retail stands and char broiling cooking in Queens

Queens Council Member Sandra Ung introduced two pieces of legislation to address concerns over quality of life on New York City’s public sidewalks.

The first piece of legislation will require the Department of Transportation (DOT) to conduct a site visit before the issuance or renewal of a stoop stand license. This license permits a business to display merchandise on a public sidewalk and can often lead to congestion problems.
