  • Presenter – General Manager Cecil House Introduction: Good Evening everyone and welcome. I ask that everyone please take a seat we are about to begin the meeting. My name is Cecil House and I am the General Manager for the New York City Housing Authority. Tonight’s meeting is very important meeting because it’s a topic I think we can all agree on - preserving public housing. This is a continuation of conversations and it is a pleasure to be here – we have NYCHA staff from various departments – Development, Communications, Operations, REES, Family Services. But before we begin the meeting I would like to inform you of the following [Ask Interpreters to come up to podium]: We have available interpreters in Spanish, Chinese and Russian. They are going to come up now and introduce themselves and explain that we have wireless interpretation equipment; that will enable you to hear the presentation simultaneously in Spanish, Chinese and Russian. We also have sign languages interpreters who will be signing during the presentation
  • Presenter – Cecil House, General Manager - Walk through each of the points listed on the slide It is important that we have a common understanding so that this can be a productive conversation as possible. I would like to go over some Ground Rules : We are here to listen If you would like to speak or ask a question – You must complete a speaker slip [Hold up a sample of speaker slip] We also have comment cards for those who would like to provide feedback. [Hold up a sample of speaker slip] This is a meeting for residents so we are going to take questions from residents first and then move on to other questions if time permits. We ask that your comments are respectful and that you be considerate of others and allow them time to share their questions If you have any personal and/or specific need or issue related to your apartment – please raise your hand, NYCHA staff is here to assist you. We want everyone to feel comfortable and have the ability to speak freely therefore there will be no videotaping allowed.

We also ask that if you have materials that you would like to hand out please wait until the end of the meeting.
  • Presenter – General Manager Cecil House Again, tonight’s meeting is a conversation about preserving, maintaining and protecting public housing for another 79 years. We want public housing to be here for future generations. As you know Smith is 60 years old . I know that the information we are going to share with you tonight is important for you hear about because you have taken the time out to come to this meeting. So lets get started with an overview of the details of the proposal so that everyone has the same information.  We will provide you with a copy of the complete presentation at the end of the meeting today.  
  • Presenter – GM House $6 Billion is the current unmet capital need and over the next 5 years this need will more than double for a total amount of $13.4 Billion. Reinforce the unmet need due to years of underfunding by the federal government $876 Million in Capital funding and $750 Million in Operating.  NYCHA is not getting enough money to keep the buildings maintained. Reiterate again the lack of the cumulative capital funding over the next 5years. Emphasize that NYCHA does not have enough money and that we cannot therefore make the necessary capital improvements or repairs. Introduce Fred Harris, Executive Vice President for Real Estate Development
