To provide enrollees
with assistance in obtaining City permits, OER has created the Green
Team. The Green Team is a group of OER project managers who can assist program
enrollees in acquiring permits from City agencies that are required for activities conducted during the investigation
and remedial phases of brownfield redevelopment.
Participation in the
NYC BCP does not exempt enrollees from obtaining all City, State or Federal
permits necessary for performance or completion of investigation, remedial or
development tasks. Each enrollee must identify
and obtain all necessary permits, including those required by City agencies, New
York State Department of Environmental Conservation, New York State Department
of State and the US Army Corps of Engineers.
OER's Green Team is available to assist
enrollees in overcoming unforeseen impediments or delays that may arise in
obtaining City permits required during the remedial process. An OER Green Team member serves as a
liaison between OER and the following City agencies: the Department of
Environmental Protection, the Department of Buildings, the Department of
Transportation, the Department of Sanitation, the Business Integrity Commission,
the Fire Department and the Department of Parks and Recreation.
Enrollees are encouraged to contact
their project manager to obtain assistance from the Green
