Dear Speaker Johnson/City Council Members:
A primary goal of the proposed rezoning in NYC is to increase affordable housing via the City's MIH policy. However, the rezoning proposals have spurred wild speculation among developers evidenced by the increase in new landlords buying up properties for much more than they are currently worth in anticipation of the construction of luxury towers and the influx of affluent residents. This has already resulted in the accelerated displacement of MOM AND POP SHOPS and tenants of low income communities like Inwood and Washington Heights.
We must stop the bleeding! A bill that goes by the name of the Small Business Job Survival Act (SBJSA)
File #0402-2014 - can help stave off the erosion of our small stores.
1. It gives small businesses the option to renew their commercial rental lease for 10 years
2. Bans under the table extortion for lease extensions
3. Provides mediation as a vehicle to negotiate exorbitant rent hikes that would otherwise put small out of business.
It must be revived, made a priority and given its hearing before mid year in the NYC Council if we are to save the character of our neighborhoods that make NYC the beautiful mozaic it is today!
