New York City developing its garment industry

May '17
New York City is all set to develop its garment industry in a big way. For this, a garment industry steering committee has been constituted by New York City deputy mayor for housing and economic development Alicia Glen, Manhattan borough president Gale A Brewer, and council member Corey Johnson, which will expand plans to boost garment manufacturing.

The new group will be chaired by Brewer and will meet for three months with the objectives of engaging stakeholders in the garment district and New York’s fashion and garment industries and devising a plan to ensure sufficient long-term space in mid-Manhattan remains available for garment manufacturers in the years to come, besides expanding upon the City’s existing plans for boosting the garment manufacturing industry.

The department of city planning will begin the formal review process for zoning changes affecting the garment centre at the August 21 city planning review session, after the steering committee makes its recommendations.

Glen said: “We believe in New York City’s future not just as a capital of fashion design and marketing, but of home-grown garment manufacturing. That’s why we’ve invested more than a quarter billion dollars in the industry.”

“There is more and more consensus that the outdated preservation requirement has not proven effective at securing this industry the affordable, quality manufacturing space it needs. Thirty years of continuous job losses prove it. It’s time for a new approach to get this industry thriving again. We are investing heavily in new, quality space in Brooklyn with the affordable, long-term leases fashion firms need to grow their businesses,” Glen added.

“I expect by late August we’ll have a plan we can all be proud of. Our steering committee will gather experts and representatives from all major stakeholders - manufacturers, labor, designers, and more - to examine the data, hear from everyone, and achieve consensus,” Brewer said.
.
Johnson said: “Community involvement is an indispensable part of creating good public policy. With this steering committee, the City is committing to engage with those most affected by the changes that the garment district has undergone so far and the challenges it will face in the future.” (SV)
