Increase fines on seemingly "permanent" sidewalk sheds with no active work being done
Everywhere, especially commercial and high-density residential areas, there is a blight of sidewalk sheds: restricting space, contributing to trash and vermin, and causing dread of crime in these dark tunnels, if not actual crime compared to regular daylight sidewalks.
Obviously, active construction necessitates these sheds, but many are up because keeping them is cheaper than the structural deficit the DOB told them to repair. And the fines for exceeding 90 days aren't persuasive.
