By Council Members Katz and Avella

 

                           WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on June 9, 2006 its decision dated June 7, 2006 (the "Decision"), on the application submitted by the Department of City Planning, pursuant to Section 201 of the New York City Charter, for an amendment to the text of the Zoning Resolution (Application No. N 060338 (A) ZRY) (the "Application");

 

                           WHEREAS, the Application is related to ULURP Application Number C 060337 ZMQ  (L.U. No. 106), an amendment of the Zoning Map to address issues of out-of-character residential development in the Jamaica Hill and Hillcrest areas of Queens Community District 8.

 

                           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 June 20, 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 Negative Declaration, issued on February 21, 2006 (CEQR No. 06DCP072Q);

 

A technical memorandum, dated June 6, 2006, was prepared in connection with the submission of

the modified application N 060338 (A) ZRY. The technical memorandum concluded that the revisions incorporated in the modified application were minor in nature and that the Negative Declaration issued on February 21, 2006 remained valid.

 

 

 

RESOLVED:

 

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

 

                           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; and
