Mayor Adams inks bill to set housing growth targets for every NYC neighborhood

New York City will set targets for how much new housing each of its 60 community districts should build every five years under legislation that Mayor Eric Adams signed into law Wednesday.

The “Fair Housing Framework”, outlined in legislation which unanimously passed the City Council last month, aims to tackle the Big Apple’s dire housing shortage by compelling neighborhoods that have traditionally evaded building new homes — traditionally whiter, more affluent corners of the city — to contribute their “fair share.”
