Press releases are designed to inform the public of an upcoming/ongoing emergency or special event. Some emergencies include coastal storms, winter weather and extreme heat. Releases also highlight special events including Ready New York presentations and other community preparedness initiatives.
The Public Design Commission meets once a month. The meeting agendas are posted online three business days in advance of each meeting and published in the City Record. Agendas are also distributed to all City Council members, Community Boards, and City agency liaisons.
