By Council Members Comrie and Levin

 

                         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 pursuant to Section 197-c of the New York City Charter by the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services, for the disposition to the Broadway Housing Development Fund Company, Inc., of a surface easement located at 882 St. Nicholas Avenue, on the southeast corner of 155th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue (Block 2069, part of Lot 26).  This action, in conjunction with the related actions, would facilitate the development of a 13-story mixed-use building with affordable housing and community facility and children museum space (ULURP No. C 100274 PPM) (the "Application");

 

                     WHEREAS, the Application is related to ULURP Applications Numbers C 100275 PQM (L.U. No. 195), an application by the Department of Citywide Administrative Services and Department of Environmental Protection to acquire a surface easement located on Block 2069, part of Lot 21, in Manhattan; and C 100277 ZMM (L.U. No. 196), a Zoning Map Amendment from C8-3 and R7-2, to R8A, Broadway Housing Development Fund Company, Inc., applicant;

 

                         WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d(b)(3) of the New York City Charter;

 

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

 

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

 

                           WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues and the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on September 3, 2010 (CEQR No. 10DCP031M);

 

 

RESOLVED:

 

Having considered the FEIS, 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 is one which minimizes or avoids adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and

 

(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.

 

(4)        The Decision and the FEIS 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 of the City Charter and on the basis of the Application and the Decision and based on the environmental determination and consideration described in the report  for the related application, C 100277 ZMM, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision.

 

Adopted.
