Statement by MAS: Defeat of Assembly Bill A7807
June 15th, 2016, 4:48 pm
MAS commends Assembly Member Keith Wright for committing to block changes to the Multiple Dwelling Law that would remove the 12 FAR cap from residential development in New York City. Last week, MAS issued a memorandum of opposition, calling on our elected officials to halt consideration of this bill until its full impacts could be studied and discussed. Together with our membership and fellow advocates, we were able to prevent this proposal from being rushed into law. We thank the State Legislature for hearing our voices, and State Senator Elizabeth Krueger in particular for first sounding the alarm. MAS looks forward to leading a continued public dialogue about the future of our city.
