Emergency Executive Order 110 with Zoning Resolution Implications


The Emergency Executive Order suspends requirements of the Zoning Resolution.


Take a look at sections 2-5:


§ 2. I hereby suspend sections 72-23 and 73-70 of the Zoning Resolution of the City of New York to the extent such sections provide that a variance or special permit shall automatically lapse if substantial construction is not completed within four years of the date of granting such variance or special permit, and order that any such period of time is tolled for the duration of the emergency.

§ 3. I hereby suspend sections 11-331 and 11-332 of the Zoning Resolution of the City of New York, to the extent such sections impose limitations on the amount of time permitted for the submission of building permit renewal applications, and order that such time limitations are tolled for the duration of the emergency.

§ 4. I hereby suspend section 52-61 of the Zoning Resolution of the City of New York to the extent such section requires that, following a continuous two-year period of discontinuance of a non-conforming use of land, building or other structure, such land, building or other structure shall be used only for a conforming use, and order that any such two-year period is tolled for the duration of the emergency.

§ 5. I hereby suspend sections l-06.3(c), l-07.3(c) and 1-07.3(d) of title 2 of the Rules of the City of New York to the extent such provisions impose limitations on the amount of time permitted for the filing of applications for statutory vested rights, extensions of time to complete construction or extensions of time to obtain certificates of occupancy, and order that any such time limitations are tolled for the duration of the emergency.
