Mayor Adams Takes Major Steps to Refocus Department of Buildings

Posted on September, 22 2022

Last week the Mayor and DOB Commissioner Eric A. Ulrich announced major steps to refocus the DOB on providing improved customer service and supporting the city’s economic recovery.

The Small Business Support Team (SBST) and the Major Projects Development Unit (MPDU) will accelerate project timelines by providing dedicated services to ensure applications avoid unnecessary pitfalls.

In the next 90 days industry groups, trade organizations, and advocacy groups will also meet and formulate recommendations to improve the DOB by providing a report to Mayor Adams and the City Council.
