(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.

 

(4)                                          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).

 

The Decision, together with the FEIS and the 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).
