                     WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision on July 1, 2009;

 

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

 

                           WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues; the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on June 5, 2009 with respect to this application (CEQR No. 08DME007K) and the Technical Memoranda, dated June 15, 2009, in which the City Planning Commission finds that the requirements of the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act and Regulations have been met, and July 22, 2009 in which it was found that the Council modifications would not result in any new significant adverse environmental impacts not already identified in the FEIS;

 

RESOLVED:

 

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

 

(1)                     The FEIS meets the requirements of 6 N.Y.C.R.R. Part 617;

 

(2)                      Consistent with social, economic and other essential considerations, from among the reasonable alternatives thereto, the action, together with the modifications thereto  adopted herein, and as described in the Technical Memoranda, dated June 15, 2009 and July 22, 2009 is one which minimizes or avoids adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable;

 

(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; and

 

(4)                            The Decision, the FEIS and the Technical Memoranda dated June 15, 2009 and July 22, 2009, 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 Section 197-d, the Council approves the decision of the City Planning Commission (C 090276 HAK).

 

                       The Council finds that the present status of the Project 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 Project 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.

 

                       The Council approves the disposition of such property to a developer selected by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development.

 

Adopted.
