If necessary, remediation measures would be undertaken pursuant to the remediation plans.
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 090225 ZMK, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision.
