By Council Members Katz and Garodnick

WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on February 2, 2009 its decision dated February 2, 2009 (the "Decision"), on the application submitted by the New York City Police Department (NYPD), the Fire Department of New York (FDNY), the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications (DoITT), the Department of Design and Construction, and the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS), pursuant to Sections 197-c and 199 of the New York City Charter and Section 5-430 et seq. of the New York City Administrative Code, for an amendment to the City Map involving:

· the establishment of Marconi Street north of Waters Place;

· the adjustment of grades necessitated thereby; and

· any acquisition or disposition of real property related thereto;

in accordance with Map No. 13122, dated August 11, 2008 and signed by the Borough President, (ULURP No. C 080197 MMX), Community District 11, Borough of the Bronx (the "Application");

WHEREAS, the Application is related to Application Number C 090070 PCX (L.U. No. 993), site selection and acquisition for the construction of New York City’s second Public Safety Answering Center (PSAC II);

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 February 23, 2009;

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 January 23, 2009, with respect to Applications Numbers C 090070 PCX and C 080197 MMX (CEQR No. 07NPD004X); and

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


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;

From among the reasonable alternatives thereto, the actions to be approved are ones which minimize or avoid adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and

The adverse environmental impacts revealed 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;

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 the decision, pursuant to 6 N.Y.C.R.R. §617.11(d).

Pursuant to Sections 197-d and 199 of the New York City Charter, the Council approves the Decision to amend the City Map with modification to reduce a portion of Marconi Street from a width of 50 to 35 feet in accordance with Map No. 13122 dated February 17, 2009, attached hereto and incorporated therein.
