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 (CEQR No. 04DCP003K);

 

A Notice of Minor Modification was issued on October 31, 2005, which determined that the zoning text and map changes set forth in Applications N060170ZRK and 060171ZMK would not result in any new or additional significant adverse impacts not already set forth in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Greenpoint-Williamsburg Rezoning.
