No. 697), a zoning text amendment to designate a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) area and to modify setback requirements in Zoning Resolution (ZR) Section Article XI, Chapter 3 to modify setback requirements for sites in R8A districts adjacent to Park Circle within the Special Ocean Parkway District (SOPD);

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


                     WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the negative declaration issued December 16th, 2019 (CEQR No. 20DCP036K) which include an (E) designation to avoid the potential for significant adverse impacts related to air quality, noise, and hazardous materials (E-555) (the “Negative Declaration”).
