By Council Members Comrie and Weprin
 
      WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on September 13, 2013 its decision dated September 11, 2013 (the "Decision") on the application submitted pursuant to Section 197-c of the New York City Charter by the New York Public Library and the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS), for the site selection of property generally bounded by Englewood Avenue, Arthur Kill Road, and Veterans Road West (Block 7459, p/o Lot 50; Block 7454, p/o Lot 5; Block 7452, p/o Lot 75; Block 7487, p/o Lot 100; and p/o Bayne Avenue record street) for use as a public library (the "Site"), Community District 3, (ULURP No. C 130289 PSR), Borough of Staten Island (the "Application");
 
      WHEREAS, the application is related to Applications C130279 ZMR (L.U. No. 929), a zoning map amendment from M1-1 District to a C4-1 and R3-2 Districts; C 130229 MMR (L.U. No. 930), a city map change to establish Bricktown Way, Tyrellan Avenue, Englewood Avenue, Fairview Park and Conservation Area; and extinguish 10 unbuilt record streets; C 130288 PQR (L.U. No. 931), an acquisition of property for use as a public school; and C 130290 PQR (L.U. No. 933), an acquisition of property easement to facilitate pedestrian, vehicular and bicycle access;
 
      WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d(b)(3) of the City Charter;
 
           WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on October 2, 2013;
 
      WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use implications and other policy issues relating to the Decision and Application;
 
      WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues and the Final Environmental Impact Statement ("FEIS") for which a Notice of Completion was issued on August 30, 2013 (CEQR No. 13DME001R);
 
 
RESOLVED:
 
Having considered the FEIS with respect to the Decision and Application, the Council finds that:
 
(1)             The FEIS meets the requirements of 6 N.Y.C.R.R. Part 617;
 
(2)      Consistent with social, economic, and other essential considerations, from among the reasonable alternatives thereto, the action is one which minimizes or avoids adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable, provided that in the event that the action cannot be realized with respect to improvement of Englewood Avenue from Kent Avenue to Veterans Road West, either the "Shortened Englewood Avenue Alternative" or the " 40-Foot Wide Englewood Avenue Alternative" may be pursued; and
 
(3)      The adverse environmental impacts disclosed in the FEIS will be minimized or avoided to the maximum extent practicable by incorporating as conditions to the approval, in accordance with environmental commitment letters, each dated September 10, 2013, from the New York City Economic Development Corporation and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, and acknowledged and accepted by the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Economic Development, those project components related to the environment and mitigation measures that were identified as practicable.
 
(4)      The Decision together with the FEIS constitute the written statement of facts, and of social, economic and other factors and standards, that form the basis of the decision, pursuant to 6 N.Y.C.R.R. §617.11(d).
 
      Pursuant to Section 197-d 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 130289 PSR, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision.
