The mayor was joined by City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and NYCHA Chairwoman Shola Olatoye at East Harlem's Wagner Houses, which is among the 15 developments targeted for installation of exterior lighting, increased policing, improvements to doors and intercom systems, and extended community center hours.
A recent guest on "Reaching Out With Gregory Floyd," Olatoye, head of NYCHA since March 3, said, "We are committed to doing things differently, resetting our relationships, and becoming more transparent. She added that the "primary goal of her administration is to provide "clean and safe" public housing. Olatoye credited Local 237 members for the work they do to help NYCHAmeet that goal.
Safe public housing is important to workers and residents. Following the murder of a child at Boulevard Houses in East New York in June, NYCHA said it has accelerated plans to install closed-circuit television cameras at 49 locations by the end of this year.
Progress is also under way in reducing the backlog of open maintenance and repair work orders. Olatoye noted that Mayor de Blasio increased funding for repairs and that the backlog has been reduced by more than 81 percent since January 2013 to about 78,000 in June 2014.
