WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on July 28, 2004 its decision dated July 28, 2004 (the "Decision"), on the application submitted by the Department of City Planning and the City Council Land Use Committee, pursuant to Section 201 of the New York City Charter, for an amendment to the text of the Zoning Resolution (Application No. N 040202 ZRY) (the "Application");

WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d(b)(1) of the City Charter;

WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on August 9, 2004;

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

WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues and the Final Environmental Impact Statement (“FEIS”) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on July 16, 2004 (CEQR No. 04DCP025Y);

RESOLVED:

Having considered the FEIS, with respect to the Application, the Council finds that:

(1) The FEIS meets the requirements of 6 N.Y.C.R.R. Part 617;

From among the reasonable alternatives thereto, the action to be approved is one which minimize or avoid adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and

The adverse environmental impacts identified in the FEIS will be minimized or avoided to the maximum extent practicable by incorporating as conditions to the approval those mitigative measures that were identified as practicable;

The Decision and the FEIS constitute the written statement of facts, and of social, economic and other factors and standards that form the basis of this decision, pursuant to 6 N.Y.C.R.R. §617.11(d).

Pursuant to Sections 197-d and 200 of the City Charter and on the basis of the Decision and Application the Council approves the Decision; and
