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
