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, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision and the HPD Requests on October 24, 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 negative declaration (CEQR No. 16HPD052K) issued on June 2, 2017 (the “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.
