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

      The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant impact on the environment subject to the applicant executing the revised conditional negative declaration as described in City Planning Commission's Report C 110058 ZMK.
 
The applicant agrees via a restrictive declaration recorded against the subject property on April 14, 2005 (CRFN 2005000214806) in connection with the previously-approved Surf Avenue Rezoning (CEQR No. 03DCP065K) to prepare a hazardous materials sampling protocol, including a health and safety plan, which would be submitted to the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for approval. The declaration establishes a covenant that runs with the land to test and identify any potential hazardous material impacts pursuant to the approved sampling protocol and, if any such impact is found, submit a hazardous materials remediation plan including a health and safety plan to DEP for approval, prior to any ground disturbance (i.e., site grading, excavation, demolition, or building construction). If necessary, remediation measures would be undertaken pursuant to the remediation plan.
 
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 110062 (A) ZSK, incorporated by reference herein, the Council approves the Decision.
