With the final 16 months of Mayor de Blasio’s administration approaching, CHPC calls for a new approach to housing in NYC and a better plan for realizing it in The Final Countdown. There is still time to create a lasting legacy even during this difficult recovery, to make real strides to address racial inequality, leave the city more resilient to future pandemics, and create more high-quality affordable housing that will serve the needs of communities that are often excluded from the benefits of development. CHPC proposes five housing policies that can conclude the current mayoral administration with progress and results. These policy ideas have no budgetary impact, but huge potential to create a more equitable New York City.

The Final Countdown:

  1. Rezone SoHo/NoHo for a more equitable NYC
  2. Equitable code enforcement
  3. Regulatory reform for basement apartment conversions
  4. Enable resident decision-making at NYCHA
  5. Affordable housing for essential workers
