By Council Members Salamanca and Kallos

 

                                          WHEREAS, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development ("HPD") submitted to the Council on February 11, 2019 its request dated February 6, 2019 that the Council take the following action regarding the proposed Urban Development Action Area Project (the "Project") located at 332 Eldert Street (Block 3419, Lot 24), Community District 4, Borough of Brooklyn (the "Disposition Area"):

 

1.                     Find that the present status of the Disposition Area tends to impair or arrest the sound growth and development of the municipality and that the proposed Urban Development Action Area Project is consistent with the policy and purposes of Section 691 of the General Municipal Law;

 

2.                     Waive the area designation requirement of Section 693 of the General Municipal Law pursuant to Section 693 of the General Municipal Law;

 

3.                     Waive the requirements of Sections 197-c and 197-d of the Charter pursuant to Section 694 of the General Municipal Law; and

 

4.                     Approve the project as an Urban Development Action Area Project pursuant to Section 694 of the General Municipal Law.

 

                           WHEREAS, the Project is to be developed on land that is an eligible area as defined in Section 692 of the General Municipal Law, consists solely of the rehabilitation or conservation of existing private or multiple dwellings or the construction of one to four unit dwellings, and does not require any change in land use permitted under the New York City Zoning Resolution;

 

                           WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Project on March 6, 2019; and

 

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

 

RESOLVED:

 

                           The Council finds that the present status of the Disposition 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 waives the designation requirement of the Disposition Area as an Urban Development Action Area pursuant to Section 693 of the General Municipal Law.

 

The Council waives the requirements of Sections 197-c and 197-d of the New York City Charter pursuant to Section 694 of the General Municipal Law.
