NYC DOB ISSUES
The 9th Cycle of the Façade Inspection and Safety Program (formerly Local Law 11/98) opens for filing Subcycle A buildings in February of 2020. However, the Facade Unit at the DOB will be considering possible rule changes which may significantly impact this program in the near future. WBMA has offered comments regarding the proposed changes, will keep it clients informed of their possible impact, and is preparing to accommodate these changes when they take effect.
In early 2020 the DOB is scheduled to implement the filing of Alteration type jobs (which most restoration and repair work fall into) through their DOB NOW portal. This should streamline the filing process in the long term but will likely have some hiccups in its initial adoption. WBMA is preparing for this change.
