                     WHEREAS, the Application is related to applications N 200082 ZRK (L.U. No. 682), a zoning text amendment to designate a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) area; C 200083 PQK (L.U.

WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission has certified its unqualified approval of UDAAP pursuant to Article 16 of the General Municipal Law;

 

WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d of the City Charter;

WHEREAS, by letter dated September 18, 2020 and submitted to the Council on September 18, 2020, HPD submitted its requests (the “HPD Requests”) respecting the Application including the submission of the project summary for the Project (the “Project Summary”);

 

WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision and the HPD Requests on September 24, 2020;

 

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

 

                     WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the Revised Negative Declaration issued November 21st, 2019, which supersedes the Negative Declaration issued October 7th, 2019, (CEQR No. 19HPD057K) which include an (E) designation to avoid the potential for significant adverse impacts related to hazardous materials and noise (E-536) (the “Revised Negative Declaration”);

 

RESOLVED:

 

                     The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant impact on the environment as set forth in the (E) Designation (E-536) and Revised Negative Declaration.

 

Pursuant to Section 197-d of the New York City Charter, based on the environmental determination and the consideration described in the report C 200084 HAK and incorporated by reference herein, and the record before the Council, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission and the HPD Requests.

 

Pursuant to Article 16 of the General Municipal Law of the New York State, based on the environmental determination and the consideration described in the report C 200084 HAK and incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission and the HPD Requests.

 

The Council finds that the present status of the Area tends to impair or arrest the sound growth and development of the City of New York and that a designation of the Project as an urban development action area project is consistent with the policy and purposes stated in Section 691 of the General Municipal Law.

 

The Council approves the designation of the Area as an urban development action area pursuant to Section 693 of the General Municipal Law.

 

The Council approves the Project as an urban development action area project pursuant to Section 694 of the General Municipal Law and subject to the terms and conditions of the Project Summary.
