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 February 27, 2017 and submitted to the Council on March 6, 2017, HPD submitted its requests (the “HPD Requests”) respecting the Application including the submission of the project summary for the Project (the “Project Summary”);

 

                       WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision and the HPD Requests on March 9, 2017;

 

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

                     

                     WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the revised negative declaration (CEQR No. 16HPD015K) issued on August 2, 2016 (the “Revised Negative Declaration”);

 

RESOLVED:

 

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

                       The Council finds that the present status of the Disposition Area tends to impair or arrest the sound growth and development of the City of New York and that a designation of the Project as an urban development action area project is consistent with the policy and purposes stated in Section 691 of the General Municipal Law.

                       The Council approves the Project as an urban development action area project pursuant to Section 694 of the General Municipal Law and subject to the terms and conditions of the Project Summary.

 

                       The Project shall be developed in a manner consistent with Project Summary submitted by HPD, copy of which is attached hereto and made a part hereof.

 

                     The Council approves the disposition of the Disposition Area to a developer to be selected by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development for the development of the Project consistent with the Project Summary.
