                     WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental review (CEQR No. 06HPD009X) and the fact that a Negative Declaration was issued on February 2, 2006;

RESOLVED:

 

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