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, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision on December 14, 2004;

 

                       WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental review (CEQR No. 04HPD020X) and the fact that a negative declaration was issued on August 20, 2004;

RESOLVED:

 

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