By Council Members Salamanca and Riley

 

                                          WHEREAS, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development ("HPD") submitted to the Council on February 2, 2021 its request dated February 2, 2021 that the Council approve an Urban Development Action Area Project (the "Project") located on Sutter Avenue between Elton and Cleveland Streets (Block 4049, p/o 25), Community District 5, Borough of Brooklyn (the "Disposition Area"):

 

1.                     Find that the present status of the Disposition Area tends to impair or arrest the sound growth and development of the municipality and that the proposed Urban Development Action Area Project is consistent with the policy and purposes of Section 691 of the General Municipal Law;

 

2.                     Waive the area designation requirement of Section 693 of the General Municipal Law pursuant to Section 693 of the General Municipal Law;

 

3.                     Waive the requirements of Sections 197-c and 197-d of the Charter pursuant to Section 694 of the General Municipal Law; and

 

4.                     Approve the project as an Urban Development Action Area Project pursuant to Section 694 of the General Municipal Law.

 

                           WHEREAS, the Project is to be developed on land that is an eligible area as defined in Section 692 of the General Municipal Law, consists solely of the rehabilitation or conservation of existing private or multiple dwellings or the construction of one to four unit dwellings, and does not require any change in land use permitted under the New York City Zoning Resolution;

 

                      WHEREAS, the Council held a public hearing on the Project on February 18, 2021.

 

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

 

RESOLVED:

 

                           The Council finds that the present status of the Disposition 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 waives the designation requirement of the Disposition Area as an Urban Development Action Area pursuant to Section 693 of the General Municipal Law.

 

The Council waives the requirements of Sections 197-c and 197-d of the New York City Charter pursuant to Section 694 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.

 

                           The Project shall be developed in a manner consistent with the Project Summary that HPD has submitted to the Council on February 2, 2021, a copy of which is attached hereto.
