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

 

                     WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the positive declaration (CEQR No. 17ECF001K) issued on May 24, 2017 and the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on July 27, 2018 which identified significant adverse impacts with respect to shadows, historic and cultural resources, transportation (traffic and pedestrian) and construction (noise, traffic, and pedestrian) and significant adverse impacts related to hazardous materials and noise which would be avoided through the placement of an (E) designation (E-124) and the Technical Memorandum dated  September 26, 2018 (the “Technical Memorandum”).
