No. 953), a city map amendment to re-establish Stanwix Street between Montieth Street and Forest Street, and Noll Street between Stanwix Street and Evergreen Avenue;
 
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 November 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 Final Environmental Impact Statement ("FEIS") for which a Notice of Completion was issued on October 11, 2013 (CEQR No. 09DCP002K);
 
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 to be approved, is one which minimizes or avoids adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; 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, pursuant to the Restrictive Declaration marked as Exhibit A in the City Planning Commission Report (C 080322 ZMK), those mitigation measures that were identified as practicable; and
 
(4)      No development pursuant to this resolution shall be permitted until the Restrictive Declaration attached as Exhibit A in the City Planning Commission Report (C 080322 ZMK), as same may be modified with any necessary administrative or technical changes, all as acceptable to counsel to the Department, is executed, and such Restrictive Declaration shall have been recorded and filed in the Office of the Register of the City of New York, County of Kings.
 
      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 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 080322 ZMK, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision.
