WHEREAS, the Application and Decision are subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Article 16 of the General Municipal Law of New York State;

 

                       WHEREAS, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development ("HPD") submitted to the Council its recommendations regarding the Application on March 26, 2009;

 

                       WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision on April 20, 2009;

 

                       WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use and financial implications and other policy issues relating to the Application;

 

                       WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental review (CEQR No. 09HPD023K) and the Negative Declaration which was issued on November 24, 2008;

 

RESOLVED:

 

                     The Council finds that the action described herein shall have no significant effect on the environment.
