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 March 16, 2021 and submitted to the Council on March 16, 2021, 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 March 8, 2021;

 

 

                       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 negative declaration issued on October 2, 2020 (CEQR No. 19HPD056M) (the “Negative Declaration”).

 

RESOLVED:

 

                     The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant impact on the environment as set forth in the Negative Declaration.
