Mayor Eyes Shampa Chanda as Board of Standards and Appeals Chair
Chair of Herrick's Land Use & Zoning group, Mitchell Korbey, spoke to The Real Deal on Mayor Eric Adams' speculated selection of city planner Shampa Chanda as the chair for the Board of Standards and Appeals. The article explained: "The BSA is an important panel to the real estate industry. It considers applications for zoning variances and other forms of relief from the zoning code, as well as appeals of decisions by the Department of Buildings and other agencies. Its five members are appointed by the mayor and serve six-year terms."
The article noted that Mitch formerly served on the BSA and in the Department of City Planning. He described Chanda as a "very fair, super smart, and extremely well-rounded public servant."
