WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on February 14, 2019;

 

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 Revised Negative Declaration issued January 30, 2019, which supersedes the Negative Declaration issued August 31, 2018, and Revised Environmental Assessment Statement issued January 25, 2019 (CEQR No. 18DCP071X) which include an (E) designation to avoid the potential for significant adverse impacts related to hazardous materials and air quality (the “E” Designation (E-498)).
