A Pre-Application Statement (“PAS”) must be submitted to the Department of City Planning (“DCP”) prior to filing most land use and environmental applications, pursuant to 62 RCNY § 10-04. The PAS, which consists of a form and accompanying materials required by the form or by DCP, provides basic pertinent information about a site and proposed project. This bill would require DCP to forward copies of a completed PAS to each affected Borough President, Community Board and Council Member. DCP would also be required to post all completed PASs on its website.
