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 March 7, 2005;

 

                       WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision on March 15, 2005;

RESOLVED:

 

                       Pursuant to Section 197-d, the Council approves the decision of the City Planning Commission (C 050121 HAK).

 

                       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.
