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

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

Consistent with the social, economic and other essential considerations, from among the reasonable alternatives thereto, the actions to be approved are ones which minimize or avoid adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and

The adverse environmental impacts revealed in the FGEIS 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 FGEIS and the Technical Memoranda described above constitute the written statement of facts, and of social, economic and other factors and standards that form the basis of the decision, pursuant to 6 N.Y.C.R.R. §617.11(d).
