Mayor Bloomberg and Speaker Quinn have announced a new approach to target illegal conversions this week.

We are delighted that it includes many of the policy proposals put forward  in CHPC’s Making Room advocacy project, including a cross-agency initiative that will result in recommendations for legal home conversions, shared housing, and micro-units.

We applaud the Mayor’s effort to address not just the enforcement issues, but the underlying problems in the housing market which CHPC has been focusing on.
