Junior Architects + Engineers Begins 3rd Semester
This month, the Department kicked off the
third semester of the Junior Architects and Engineers Program. Commissioner Robert LiMandri and Queens Borough Commissioner Ira Gluckman,
RA, taught PS 88 fifth graders about
the importance of construction in New
York City and the Department's role in
facilitating safe development. This educational program helps elementary school students learn about the construction process ― and
inspires the next generation of design professionals.
New Program to Accelerate Plan Approval Process
We've launched a new pilot program in Queens to accelerate the approval process and reduce the number
of plan exam appointments by requiring applicants to submit
complete construction plans. The Queens Borough Office is now only accepting complete drawings
with submitted applications. Use our new Plan Examination Guidelines to help prepare a complete application package.
No-Penalty Retaining Wall Inspections
The Department's annual No-Penalty Retaining Wall Inspection Program is
underway. Through June 30, private
property owners may schedule a free,
no-penalty retaining wall inspection ―
and no violations will be issued during
the program. Call 311 for an inspection
as part of this program.
