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 December 6, 2007 on the Decision and Application;

 

                           WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues and the Conditional Negative Declaration, issued on August 20, 2007 (CEQR No. 06DCP079M);
