b)                     an Urban Development Action Area Project for such area (the "Project"); and

 

pursuant to Section 197-c of the New York City Charter for the disposition of such property to a developer selected by the Department of Housing Preservation and Development  to facilitate the development of a seven-story building tentatively known as RAIN Apartments for the Elderly, with approximately 72 units of low-income housing for senior citizens, plus one unit for a superintendent, and a senior citizens center to be developed under the  New York State Housing Trust Fund Program, Community District 12, Borough of the Bronx (the "Disposition")  (ULURP No. C 040274 HAX) (the "Application");

WHEREAS, the Application and Decision are subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Article 16 of the General Municipal Law of New York State;

                       WHEREAS, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development ("HPD") submitted to the Council its recommendations regarding the Application on May 28, 2004;

 

                       WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision on July 19, 2004;

 

                       WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental review (CEQR No. 03HPD015X) and the fact that a Negative Declaration was issued on June 16, 2003;

 

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

 

RESOLVED:

 

The Council finds that the actions described herein will have no significant effect on the environment;

 

                       Pursuant to Section 197-d, the Council approves the decision of the City Planning Commission (C 040274 HAX).

 

                       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.
