By Council Members Greenfield and Koo

 

                          WHEREAS, the New York City School Construction Authority submitted to the Council on July 10, 2017, a site plan dated June 1, 2016, pursuant to Section 1732 of the New York State Public Authorities Law for a new, approximately 332-Seat Primary School Facility, known as P.S. 557, Brooklyn, to be located at 4302 4th Avenue (Southwest corner of 43rd Street and 4th Avenue) (Tax Block 728, Lots 34 and 36), Community District No. 12, Borough of Brooklyn, Community School District No. 15 (the "Site Plan");

 

                         WHEREAS, the Site Plan is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 1732 of the New York State Public Authorities Law;

 

                          WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Site Plan on July 17, 2017;

 

                     WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) issued July 7, 2017, (SEQR Type I - Project Number 17-024) (the “Final Environmental Impact Statement”); and

 

                           WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use implications and other policy issues relating to the Site Plan.

 

RESOLVED:

 

Having considered the Final Environmental Impact Statement (“FEIS”), with respect to the 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, the proposed action is the one which minimizes or avoids adverse environmental effects to the maximum extent practicable, including the effects disclosed in the FEIS; and

 

(3)                                          consistent with social, economic and other essential considerations, to the maximum extent practicable, adverse environmental effects revealed in the supplemental draft environmental impact statement process will be minimized or avoided by incorporating as conditions to the approval those mitigative measures which were identified as practicable; and

 

The Decision and the FEIS constitute the written statement of facts, and of social, economic and other factors and standards that form the basis of this determination, pursuant to 6 N.Y.C.R.R. §617.

                                                                                                                                                     

                           Pursuant to Section 1732 of the Public Authorities Law, the Council approves the Site Plan.

 

Adopted.
