WHEREAS, the Application is related to ULURP Applications Numbers C 050074 MMX (L.U. No. 9), an amendment to the City Map eliminating East 150th Street between River Avenue and Exterior Street; East 151st Street between River Avenue and Cromwell Avenue; and Cromwell Avenue between Exterior Street and the Metro North Rail Road tracks; C 050530 ZSX (L.U.

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 January 23, 2006;

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 December 8, 2005 (CEQR No. 04DME017X);


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 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 FEIS will be minimized or avoided to the maximum extent practicable by incorporating as conditions to this 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 the 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.

The Zoning Resolution of the City of New York, effective as of December 15, 1961, and as subsequently amended, is further amended by changing the Zoning Map, Section No. 6a, changing from an M2-1 to a C4-4 District property bounded by a line 1120 feet southerly of Macombs Dam Bridge and its easterly prolongation, Gateway Center Boulevard/Major Deegan Expressway, the northeasterly boundary line of the Metro North Rail Road Right-Of-Way, River Avenue, East 149th Street, Gateway Center Boulevard/Major Deegan Expressway, a line 600 feet northerly of East 149th Street, and the U.S. Pierhead and Bulkhead Line, as shown on a diagram (for illustrative purposes only) dated July 11, 2005, Community District 4, Borough of the Bronx.
