Notice: In order to ensure that the members of the Rent Guidelines Board are able to deliberate and to hear members of the public with regard to renewal lease adjustments, and that members of the public are able to participate meaningfully in the public meeting and hearing process, items that are reasonably likely to disrupt the proceedings, such as noisemakers and drums, are prohibited and may not be brought into meeting and hearing venues.  We encourage you to arrive early to avoid delays and help speed the entry of all members of the public.  Your cooperation, patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.

Summary explanation of the procedures for speaking at public meetings

In relation to the public hearings, registration of speakers is required. Pre-registration of speakers is now being accepted and is advised. Those who wish to pre-register for the June 15 hearing in Queens may call (212) 385-2934 until 1:00 P.M. on Monday, June 14, 2010. Those who wish to pre-register for the June 17 hearing in Manhattan may call (212) 385-2934 until 1:00 P.M. on Wednesday, June 16, 2010. An exact time for speaking cannot be provided, but those pre-registering will be informed of their number on the list of pre-registered speakers when they call the above listed phone number. Written requests for pre-registration must be received at the office of the Board at 51 Chambers Street, Room 202, New York, NY, 10007, before 1:00 P.M. on Monday, June 14 for the June 15 hearing and before 1:00 P.M. on Wednesday, June 16 for the June 17 hearing. Persons who request that a sign language interpreter or other form of reasonable accommodation for a disability be provided at a hearing are requested to notify Ms. Charmaine Superville at the Rent Guidelines Board (212) 385-2934, 51 Chambers Street, Room 202, New York, NY 10007 by Friday, June 4, 2010 at 4:30 PM.

Pre-registered speakers who have confirmed their presence on the day of the hearing will be heard in the order of pre-registration and before those who have not pre-registered. If a speaker's pre-registered position has been passed before he or she has confirmed his or her pre-registration, his or her position is forfeited and he or she must re-register. There will be no substitutions of one speaker's position for another. Those who have not pre- registered or need to re-register can register at the hearing location from 3:45 PM until 8:00 PM at the June 15 hearing and from 9:45 AM until 6:00 PM at the June 17 hearing, and will be heard in the order of their registration. Public officials and a limited number of speakers chosen by owner and tenant groups may be given priority over other speakers. The public is invited to observe all Public Meetings and Public Hearings but is invited to speak at only the Public Hearings. Please note that testimony regarding the preliminary guidelines from tenants and owners of rent stabilized apartments, lofts, and hotels, as well as public officials, will be heard throughout the day starting at 4:00 PM on June 15 and 10:00 AM on June 17. There is no scheduled break for lunch or dinner.

The Public Notice (in pdf format*) details the proposed guidelines, as well as procedures relating to public meetings and hearings concerning the guidelines.

NOTE: The Rent Guidelines Board reserves the right to cancel or reschedule public meetings and amend meeting agendas.
