Deed Restriction Lists and Statement from Council Member Ben Kallos

07/01/2016

“The City Council has a responsibility to hold an oversight hearing on deed restrictions. I want to get to the bottom of what happened at Rivington, St. Nicholas, and other sites where developers bought out of their duty to serve the community,” said Council Member Ben Kallos, Chair of the Committee of Governmental Operations with oversight over the Department of Citywide Administrative Services which grants deed restrictions. “Now that they’ve finally turned over the list of deed restrictions that were pending or granted, we must publicly review the benefits communities could be losing.”
