No. 1436 (L.U. No. 670) RESOLVED: The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant effect on the environment subject to the following conditions: 1) Prior to the start of construction the applicant shall undertake or cause to be undertaken through the terms and conditions of the proposed disposition an archeological field testing for Block 2875/Lots 42 and 43, and Block 2791/Lot 35. 2) A minimum of 25 db (A) window/wall attenuation must be provided with a closed window condition at each residence. Alternate means of ventilation is also required. Alternate means of ventilation includes: provisions for central air conditioning or provisions for air conditioning sleeves containing air conditioners or HUD approved fans. 3) Landmarks Preservation Commission review of archeological sensitivity models, historic maps, and the Phase 1A Archeological Assessment of the Maujer Street Community Development Plan by Historic Perspectives 1992, indicate that there is potential for the recovery of remains from 19th Century occupation of the following sites: Block 2785/Lots 42, 43 and 44 and Block 2791/Lots 7, 17 and 35. Accordingly, a topic intensive documentary study should be performed to clarify these initial findings prior to the commencement of field testing. It may be submitted as a portion of the scope of work, but should include all information about occupants from deeds, tax records, business/residential directories, and state and federal census records. All work should be performed in accordance with the CEQR Technical Manual 1993. The Council finds that the Area is appropriate for urban renewal. Pursuant to Section 504 of the General Municipal Law, the Council designates the Area as the Maujer Street Urban Renewal Area. ___________ Page 3 of 3 N 970370 HGK Reso. No. 1436 (L.U.
