                     WHEREAS, the Application is related to applications C 170416 ZMK (L.U.

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

 

                                               WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission has made the findings required pursuant to Section 74-743 of the Zoning Resolution of the City of New York;

 

WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on November 14, 2017;

 

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

 

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 October 19, 2017, (CEQR No. 16DME005K) which identified significant adverse impacts with respect to historic and cultural resources - archaeological resources, transportation (traffic, buses, subways, and pedestrians) and construction activities related to noise;

 

RESOLVED:

 

                     Having considered the FEIS 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 thereto, the action is one which minimizes or avoids adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and

 

(3)                                          The adverse environmental impacts disclosed in the FEIS will be minimized or avoided to the maximum extent practicable by incorporating as conditions to the approval, those mitigation measures that were identified as practicable.

 

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. §617.11(d).

 

Pursuant to Sections 197-d and 200 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 170418 ZSK, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission.
