Reduce Scaffolding in District 3 and Review Scaffolding Effectiveness to update current laws
New York is being overtaken by Scaffolding! Let's make District 3 be the change maker for pushing back on this never ending construction monstrosity. Scaffolding hides our beautiful architecture and increases crime in the area by sheltering illicit activity an increasingly large problem in the district. We need a action committee to set and enforce the legal limit on how long scaffolding may stay up. We need to require that all scaffolding to be brightly lit and open to street side. In addition, we should be reviewing why and how often scaffolding is being put up and evaluate risk and potential alternatives. This committee can make a push to change existing laws to limit scaffolding in the area. This would greatly increase the beauty, value and safety of our neighborhood.
This will serve the entire neighborhood by increasing the beauty of the neighborhood and street safety.
