By Council Members Katz and Garodnick


WHEREAS, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development ("HPD") submitted to the Council its request dated September 18, 2008, pursuant to Section 504 of Article 15 of the General Municipal Law that the Council designate the properties located at 213 East 125th Street (Block 1790/Lot 8) Site 12; 2315-2319 3rd Avenue (Block 1790/Lot 46) Site 12;  2469 2nd Avenue (Block 1791/Lot 25) Site 9; and 230 East 127th Street (Block 1791/Lot 34) Site 9; as described in the Harlem-East Harlem Urban Renewal Plan, dated January, 2008,  as the Harlem-East Harlem Urban Renewal Area (the "Area");


                     WHEREAS, the Application is related to ULURP Applications Numbers C 080331 HAM (L.U. No. 870), designation of an urban development action area project and disposition of city-owned property; C 080332 HUM (L.U. No. 871), 15th Amended Harlem-East Harlem Urban Renewal Plan; and C 080333 ZMM (L.U. No. 872), an amendment to the Zoning Map;


WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the designation of the Area on September 16, 2008;


WHEREAS, the Council has considered the land use implications and other policy issues relating to the Area; and


                           WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues and the Final Environmental Impact Statement (“FEIS”) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on August 15, 2008 (CEQR No. 07DME025M); 




Having considered the FEIS, with respect to the Application, the Council finds that:


(1)                                          The FEIS meets the requirements of 6 N.Y.C.R.R. Part 617;


(2)                                          Consistent with social, economic and other essential considerations, from among the reasonable alternatives thereto, the proposed action is the one which minimizes or avoids adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and


(3)                                          The adverse environmental impacts disclosed in the FEIS will be minimized or avoided to the maximum extent practicable by incorporating as conditions to the approval, those mitigative measures that were identified as practicable; and


The Decision and the FEIS constitute the written statement of facts, and of social, economic and other factors and standards, that form the basis of this determination, pursuant to 6 N.Y.C.R.R. §617.11(d).


The Council finds that the Area is appropriate for urban renewal.


Pursuant to Section 504 of the General Municipal Law, the Council designates the Area as the Harlem-East Harlem Urban Renewal Area.
