Resolution approving the decision of the City Planning Commission on ULURP No. C 100369 ZMM, a Zoning Map amendment (L.U. No. 221).


By Council Members Comrie and Weprin


                     WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on September 17, 2010 its decision dated September 15, 2010 (the "Decision"), on the application submitted by the New York City Department of City Planning, pursuant to Sections 197-c and 201 of the New York City Charter, for an amendment of the Zoning Map to change an M1-5 District to a C6-2A District (ULURP No. C 100369 ZMM) (the "Application");


                     WHEREAS, the Application is related to Application Number N 100370 (A) ZRM (L.U. No. 222), a Zoning Text Amendment to create new subareas with specific bulk envelopes and densities in the proposed C6-2A and to modify elements of the existing Special Tribeca Mixed Use District;


WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d(b)(1) of the City Charter;


WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on October 5, 2010;


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


                     WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues and the Negative Declaration, issued on June 4, 2010 which included an e-designation (E-257) for hazardous materials, air quality and noise.  On September 15, 2010, a Revised Negative Declaration was issued which reflects the modified application and minor corrections to the (E) Designation (CEQR No. 10DCP039M);




                     The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant effect on the environment.


Pursuant to Sections 197-d and 200 of the City Charter and on the basis of the Decision and Application, and based on the environmental determination and consideration described in this report, C 100369 ZMM, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision.


                     The Zoning Resolution of the City of New York, effective as of December 15, 1961, and as subsequently amended, is further amended by changing the Zoning Map, Section 12a, changing from a M1-5 District to a C6-2A District property bounded by Canal Street, Hudson Street, Vestry Street and its easterly centerline prolongation, Canal Street, Broadway, Walker Street, West Broadway, North Moore Street, a line 100 feet westerly of Varick Street, Ericsson Place, Beach Street, Greenwich Street, Hubert Street, Washington Street, Watts Street, and West Street, Borough of Manhattan, Community District 1, as shown on a diagram (for illustrative purposes only) dated June 7, 2010, Community District 3, Borough of Manhattan.
