(The People's Roadmap Moderator) #1

Accountability emerged as a Smarter Communities topic area at The People’s Roadmap Workshop – Manhattan Edition (December 7, 2017). Use this thread to continue that discussion!

Community thoughts about Current State

  • NYC has many tax liens on non-profit buildings that should be exempt
  • Shallow help offered by people/organizations with their own agendas. No true alignment with the community.
  • Lack of follow up for long term adoption of tools
  • Maintenance is overshadowed by innovation; raise its status and increase effectiveness with data, reporting, etc.

Community thoughts about Desired Future State

  • Amend the process by which a tax is imposed so these commons are not lost to tax lien sales
