Resolution approving the decision of the City Planning Commission on ULURP No. C 100437 ZMM, a Zoning Map amendment (L.U. No. 233).


By Council Members Comrie and Weprin


                     WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on October 4, 2010 its decision dated September 29, 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 rezone portions of six blocks in the far western part of the West Village generally bounded by the east side of Washington Street approximately between West 10th and West 12th Streets, extending eastward to include the west side of Greenwich Street between West 11th and West 10th Streets.  The proposed amendment would change the existing non-contextual C6-1 zoning district to a contextual C1-6A zoning district and is intended to: (1) address the disparity between the commercial and residential FAR allowed in the C6-1 district; and (2) encourage new development that reflects existing neighborhood character and scale (ULURP No. C 100437 ZMM) (the "Application");


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 25, 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 7, 2010 (CEQR No. 10DCP047M);




                     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 100437 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 No. 12a, changing from a C6-1 District to a C1-6A District property bounded by12th Street, a line 100 feet easterly of Washington Street, a line midway between West 11th Street and Perry Street, Greenwich Street, West 10th Street, a line 150 feet easterly of Washington Street, a line 125 feet northerly of West 10th Street, and Washington Street, as shown on a diagram (for illustrative purposes only) dated June 7, 2010, Community Districts 2, Borough of Manhattan.
