      WHEREAS, the applications are related to Applications C 130376 HAK (L.U.

No. 942), a zoning map amendment to change an existing R6, R6/C2-3 and M1-1 district to R7A/C2-4, and C4-4L;
 
            WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission has certified that the Plan for the Area complies with the provisions of Section 502 of the General Municipal Law, conforms to the comprehensive community plan for the development of the municipality as a whole and is consistent with local objectives, and that the Plan is in conformity with the findings and designation of the Area;
 
           WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d(b)(1) of the City Charter;
 
WHEREAS, the Area Designation is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 504 of the General Municipal Law;

RESOLVED:
 
      The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant effect on the environment as set forth in the Negative Declaration.
 
Pursuant to Section 504 of the General Municipal Law, the Council approves the Designation of the Area.
 
           Pursuant to Section 505(4) of the General Municipal Law, the Council finds that:
 
   1.      The Area is a substandard or insanitary area or is in danger of becoming a substandard or insanitary area and tends to impair or arrest the sound growth and development of the municipality;
 
   2.      The financial aid to be provided to the municipality is necessary to enable the project to be undertaken in accordance with the Plan;

   4.      The Plan conforms to a comprehensive community plan for the development of the municipality as a whole;
 
   5.      There is a feasible method for the relocation of families and individuals displaced from the Area into decent, safe and sanitary dwellings, which are or will be provided in the Area or in other areas not generally less desirable in regard to public utilities and public and commercial facilities, at rents or prices within the financial means of such families or individuals, and reasonably accessible to their places of employment; and
 
   6.      The undertaking and carrying out of the urban renewal activities in stages is in the best public interest and will not cause any additional or increased hardship to the residents of the Area.
 
           Pursuant to Section 505 of the General Municipal Law, the Council approves the Third Amended East New York I Urban Renewal Plan for the East New York Urban Renewal Area, dated May 2013.
 
           Pursuant to Section 197-d of the New York City Charter, and on the basis of the Decision and Application, the Council approves the Decision.
