                     WHEREAS, the Application is related to applications C 170361 ZMM (L.U. No. 776), a zoning map amendment to change existing R7-2 and R7-2/C1-4 districts to R9 and R9/C2-5 districts; N 170362 ZRM (L.U.

No. 781), a special permit to allow commercial use above the second story within a mixed-use building within a Large Scale General Development; C 170367 ZSM (L.U. No. 782) a special permit to modify parking requirements within a Large Scale General Development; and 20185083 (L.U. No. 790), a real property tax exemption;

 

                     WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d(b)(3) of the City Charter;

 

                           WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on October 11, 2017;

 

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

 

WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on September 19, 2017 (CEQR No. 17DCP048M), and the Technical Memoranda dated September 29, 2017, (the “Technical Memoranda”);

 

RESOLVED:

 

                     Having considered the FEIS and the Technical Memoranda with respect to the Decision and 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 available, the action is one which avoids or minimizes adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and

 

(3)                     The adverse environmental impacts identified in the Sendero Verde Development Alternative of the FEIS will be minimized or avoided to the maximum extent practicable by incorporating as conditions to the approval, pursuant to the Land Disposition Agreement(s) with the City, those project components related to the environment and mitigation measures determined to be practicable.

 

                     The Decision, together with the FEIS and the Technical Memoranda, 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. §617.11(d).

                     

Pursuant to Section 197-d of the City Charter and on the basis of the Decision and Application, and based on the environmental determination and consideration described in this report, C 170364 PQM, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision.
