In the case of applications to the Board of Standards and Appeals, the same holds true. Once we've prepared a radius map and photographs, writing about a site and proposed project comes easy. In fact, in cases where we've prepared custom maps intended to further a particular line of argument, it makes even more sense to have us prepare a draft. For example, once we've prepared a 10-page set of maps and diagrams explaining a site's uniqueness, why wouldn't we take a first pass at drafting the (a) finding? Or after preparing a study of neighborhood character, why not have us draft the (c) finding? As shown below, you can pair our graphics with related written documents at the BSA, too:
If we prepare a Preliminary Meeting Presentation, a basic set of maps, or site photographs at the start of the project:
Draft Preliminary Meeting Request - your two-to-three page letter explaining the basis of your prospective application, what is proposed, and requesting a meeting with the Chair and Executive Director.
If we prepare a Radius Map, Owners, Site Photographs, and a Uniqueness Study:
Draft Complete BSA Application - we have experience preparing the entire set of written documents for your BSA Application: Completing BSA Forms, Drafting Statements of Facts and Findings. Our work is based on the instructions published by Board,, and on similar prior applications that have been successful.
If you don't want to waste your time, or your staff's time, making copies and going down to Board to file, or if you are spending too much time satisfying the new digital filing requirements, we'd be glad to handle all of the above. Just Fedex us a complete copy of your application with a filing fee check (or we can pick up the same via messenger). We'll convert to digital per the Board's instructions, make copies, file the application, perform certified mailings to the administrative notification parties, and return a clocked and stamped copy of the application, the receipt, and proof of mailing to you.
Thereafter, we are available to make submissions at the BSA (especially for those whose offices are not in Manhattan), or—if you're in a pinch—attend review sessions (our notes include not only everything that is said, but who said it).
