By Council Members Salamanca and Moya


                     WHEREAS, Catholic Health Care System, filed an application pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter, for an amendment of the Zoning Map, Section No. 6b, by changing from an R7-2 District to an R8 District, which in conjunction with the related action would facilitate a mixed-use development that would include community facility and residential uses, Borough of Manhattan, Community District 11 (ULURP No. C 190158 ZMM) (the “Application”);


WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on September 13, 2019, its decision dated September 11, 2019 (the “Decision”), on the application;


                     WHEREAS, the Application is related to application N 190156 ZRM (Pre. L.U. No. 544), a zoning text amendment to designate the rezoning area as a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) area;


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

WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on September 18, 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 negative declaration issued April 8th, 2019 (CEQR No. 19DCP070M), which includes an (E) designation related to air quality, noise, and hazardous materials that would be established in connection with the proposed actions; and additionally the applicant entered into a Restrictive Declaration to ensure the implementation of best management practices relating to construction as Project Components Related to the Environment (E-531) (the “Negative Declaration”).


The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant impact on the environment as set forth in the (E) Designation (E-531) and Negative Declaration.

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 the report, C 190158 ZMM, incorporated by reference herein, and the record before the Council, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission.
