At yesterday’s City Planning hearing, the Commission approved the Bicycle Storage Zoning on which AIA NY submitted testimony recently. We were pleased to see that several modifications we suggested are included in the final text, including allowing reductions or waivers for affordable and elderly housing developments. This will help keep costs down and reduce the incidence of unused bicycle parking in these important housing types.
Thanks to the Department for engaging our profession in the public review process and for taking our suggestions seriously. The text is better off for it!
