RESOLVED:

 

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

(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;

 

(4)     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 200 of the City Charter and on the basis of the Decision and Application, and based on the environmental determination and consideration described in this report, C 090303 ZMX, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision.
