Resolution approving the decision of the City Planning Commission on ULURP No. C 180085 ZMQ, a Zoning Map amendment (L.U. No. 244).

 

By Council Members Salamanca and Moya

 

                     WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on September 28, 2018 its decision dated September 26, 2018 (the "Decision"), on the application submitted by Variety Boys and Girls Club of Queens, pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter, for an amendment of the Zoning Map, Section No. 9a, changing from an R6B District to an R7X District and changing from an R7A District to an R7X District, which in conjunction with the related action would facilitate the development of a new building with community facility, commercial and residential uses at 21-12 30th Road in the Astoria neighborhood of Queens, Community District 1, (ULURP No. C 180085 ZMQ), Community District 1, Borough of Queens (the "Application");

 

                     WHEREAS, the Application is related to application N 180086 ZRQ (Pre. L.U. No. 245), a zoning text amendment to designate a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) area;

 

WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d(b)(1) of the City Charter;

 

WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on October 3, 2018;

 

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

 

                     WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the negative declaration issued May 7, 2018 (CEQR No. 18DCP121Q), which includes an (E) designation to avoid the potential for significant adverse impacts related to hazardous materials, air quality or noise, and would apply to the development site Block 550, Lots 7 and 10 (E-478), which supersedes the (E) designation for hazardous materials and air quality placed on Lot 7 as part of the Astoria Rezoning (E-245) (CEQR No. 10DCP019Q) (the “Negative Declaration”).

 

RESOLVED:

 

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

 

                     Pursuant to Section 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 the report, C 180085 ZMQ, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission.

 

The Zoning Resolution of the City of New York, effective as of December 15, 1961, and as subsequently amended, is further amended by changing the Zoning Map, Section No. 9a:

 

1.                     changing from an R6B District to an R7X District property bounded by 30th Road, a line 200 feet southeasterly of 21st Street, 30th Drive, and a line 100 feet southeasterly of 21st Street; and
