WHEREAS, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development ("HPD") submitted to the Council on April 28, 2014 its request dated March 14, 2014 that the Council amend the project summary (the "Amended Project") with respect to a transfer parcel located at 568 Graham Avenue and 235 Driggs Avenue (Block 2700, Lot 4), which was previously approved as an Urban Development Action Area Project, Community District 1, Borough of Brooklyn (the "Transfer Area"):
 
1.      Find that the present status of the Transfer Area tends to impair or arrest the sound growth and development of the municipality and that the proposed Urban Development Action Area Project is consistent with the policy and purposes of Section 691 of the General Municipal Law;
 
2.      Waive the area designation requirement of Section 693 of the General Municipal Law pursuant to Section 693 of the General Municipal Law;
 
3.      Approve the Amended Project as an Urban Development Action Area Project pursuant to Section 694 of the General Municipal Law.
 
           WHEREAS, the Amended Project is to be developed on land that is now an eligible area as defined in Section 692 of the General Municipal Law, consists solely of the rehabilitation or conservation of existing private or multiple dwellings or the construction of one to four unit dwellings, and does not require any change in land use permitted under the New York City Zoning Resolution;
 
      WHEREAS,  the request made by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development is related to a previously approved  City Council Resolution on April 17, 2001, (Resolution No. 1852 of 2001, L.U. No. 1008);
 
 
WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Amended Project on May 20, 2014;
 
WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use implications and other policy issues relating to the Amended Project;
 
RESOLVED:
 
The Council finds that the present status of the Transfer Area tends to impair or arrest the sound growth and development of the municipality and that the proposed Urban Development Action Area Project is consistent with the policy and purposes stated in Section 691 of the General Municipal Law.
