WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on March 8, 2022;


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 September 20th, 2021 (CEQR No. 21DCP146K), which includes an (E) designation to avoid the potential for significant adverse impacts related to hazardous materials, air quality, and noise impacts (E-642) (the “Negative Declaration).




The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant impact on the environment as set forth in the (E) Designation (E-642) and Negative Declaration.
