Mayor’s Office Revives Coordinated Street Furniture Bill

The Mayor’s Office recently submitted a bill to the City Council proposing an authorizing resolution for the installation, operation, and maintenance of a coordinated street furniture franchise. One company will be given the franchise, which will cover bus shelters, newstands, information kiosks and self-cleaning automatic public toilets. The Municipal Art Society supported this effort five years ago when it was proposed by the Giuliani administration, and is pleased that the Bloomberg administration is reviving this effort to bring well-designed and well-maintained furniture to the streets of New York.
