                        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 said Section;

                     WHEREAS, the Project is to be developed on land that is now a municipally-owned 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 August 9, 2004;

 

WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use 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.
