By Council Members Comrie and Weprin
      WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on January 23, 2013 its decision dated January 23, 2013 (the "Decision"), on the application submitted by Fairmont Lanes, LLC, pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter, for an amendment of the Zoning Map, to rezone the property located at 1560 60th Street (Block 5516, Lot 34) from an M1-1 District to an R6A, to facilitate the construction of a mixed-use development with 112 dwelling units, Community District 12 (ULURP No. C 090154 ZMK), Borough of Brooklyn (the "Application");
WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d(b)(1) of the City Charter;
WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on February 12, 2013;
WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use implications and other policy issues relating to the Decision and Application; and
      WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues and the conditional negative declaration (CEQR No. 11DCP022K) issued on January 23, 2013 (the "Conditional Negative Declaration");
The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant impact on the environment subject to (i) CEQR Declaration E-289 and (ii) the following terms of the Conditional Negative Declaration:
The applicant has entered into a restrictive declaration (Block 5516, Lot 34) to ensure that the appropriate hazardous materials sampling protocols, including health and safety plans, will occur prior to construction on the premises (Block 5516, Lot 34). The restrictive declaration would ensure that appropriate remediation measures for on-site hazardous materials, if necessary, would occur.
Pursuant to Sections 197-d and 200 of the City Charter and on the basis of the Decision and Application, and based on the environmental determination and consideration described in this report, C 090154 ZMK, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision.
The Zoning Resolution of the City of New York, effective as of December 15, 1961, and as subsequently amended, is further amended by changing the Zoning Map, Section No. 22d, changing from an M1-1 District to an R6A District property bounded by the southerly boundary line of the Long Island Railroad right-of-way (Bay Ridge Division), 60th Street, 16th Avenue, and 61st Street, as shown in a diagram (for illustrative purposes only) dated September 4, 2012, and subject to the conditions of CEQR Declaration E-289, Community District 12, Borough of Brooklyn.
