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

 

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

 

RESOLVED:

 

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

(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, pursuant to a Restrictive Declaration, dated July 13, 2010, 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 Sections 197-d and 200 of the City Charter and on the basis of the Application and Decision, and based on the environmental determination and consideration described in the report for the related application, C 100277 ZMM, the Council approves the Decision.
