b)                     an Urban Development Action Area Project for such area (the "Project"); and

 

pursuant to Section 197-c of the New York City Charter for the disposition of such property to a developer to be selected by the Department of Housing Preservation and Development to facilitate the development of a 15-story mixed-use building, tentatively known as HANAC Astoria Senior Residence, with approximately 184 residential units for seniors, a senior citizens center and retail space (the "Disposition"),  Community District 1, Borough of Queens (ULURP No. C 060168 HAQ) (the "Application");

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 January 9, 2006;

 

                       WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision on March 9, 2006;

RESOLVED:

 

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