WHEREAS, the Application and Decision are subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Article 16 of the General Municipal Law of New York State;

 

 

WHEREAS, by letter dated October 5, 2015 and submitted to the Council on October 14, 2015, HPD submitted its requests (the “HPD Requests”) respecting the Application including a project summary (the “Project Summary”);

 

                       WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision on October 22, 2015;

 

                       WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use and financial implications and other policy issues relating to the Application;

RESOLVED:

 

                     The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant impact on the environment as set forth in the Negative Declaration.
