New York City Mayor's Office of Environmental Coordination Announces Release of 2012 CEQR Technical Manual
In February 2012, the New York City Mayor's Office of Environmental Coordination announced the release of the updated New York City Environmental Quality Review (CEQR) Technical Manual.
For the first time, the 2012 version of the manual is available for download as a complete, single document. Individual chapters also remain available for download.
The 2012 edition primarily provides clarifying editorial changes, corrections, and updates to reflect new rules, policies, and data. There is also a methodology change for the Community Facilities - Schools analysis. For impact analyses commenced prior to February 2, 2012, which are not considered complete as of such date, the lead agency should consider whether supplementation of the impact analyses to reflect a methodology of the updated CEQR Technical Manual should be conducted.
A detailed summary of the changes is available here.
