Mayor Announces Industrial Policy

Evergreen works to ensure that policy brings job growth.

In November, Mayor DeBlasio and Council Speaker Mark-Viverito announced a 10-point planĀ  to encourage growth of industrial jobs in NYC. The plan includes:

  • A commitment not to support applications for residential conversion in NYC’s Industrial Business Zones (IBZs)
  • Requirement for special permits for hotels and mini storage in IBZs
  • Investment in city-owned industrial properties
  • Creation of a fund for nonprofit development of industrial real estate

Throughout the process, Evergreen has been working closely with decision makers to ensure that industrial policy and programs are tailored to the needs of our constituent businesses and will result in job growth in our community.
