By Council Members Salamanca and Kallos

 

WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on March 30, 2018 its decision dated March 28, 2018 (the "Decision"), on the application submitted by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (“HPD”) pursuant to Article 16 of the General Municipal Law of New York State regarding:

 

a)                     the designation of property located at 1490 Southern Boulevard (Block 2981, Lot 14), as an Urban Development Action Area (the “Area”); and

 

b)                     an Urban Development Action Area Project for such area (the “Project);

 

to facilitate the construction of a new 10-story residential building with 114 units of affordable independent residences for low income seniors, one superintendent unit and community facility space in Community District 3, Borough of the Bronx (ULURP No. N 180153 HAX) (the "Application");

 

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, by letter dated April 10, 2018 and submitted to the Council on April 12, 2018, HPD submitted its requests (the “HPD Requests”) respecting the Application including the submission of the project summary for the Project (the “Project Summary”);

 

                       WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision and the HPD Requests on April 17, 2018;

 

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

 

                     WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the negative declaration (CEQR No. 17HPD085X) issued on December 21, 2017 (the “Negative Declaration”).

 

RESOLVED:

                     The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant impact on the environment as set for in the Negative Declaration.

 

                       Pursuant to Article 16 of the General Municipal Law of the New York State, based on the environmental determination and the consideration described in the report (N 180153 HAX) and incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission and the HPD Requests.

 

                       The Council finds that the present status of the 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 designation of the Area as an urban development action area pursuant to Section 693 of the General Municipal Law.
