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

                     WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the positive declaration issued on August 14, 2018 (CEQR No. 18DOC001Y) and a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on August 23, 2019, in which the proposed development as analyzed in the FEIS identified significant adverse impacts for the selected Bronx site with respect to transportation (traffic) and construction (traffic, pedestrians and noise); for the selected Brooklyn site with respect to transportation (traffic), construction (traffic, pedestrians and noise), and historic and cultural resources; for the selected Manhattan site with respect to transportation (traffic), construction (pedestrians), and historic and cultural resources; and for the selected Queens site with respect to transportation (traffic) and construction (traffic, pedestrians and noise).

 

 RESOLVED:

 

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

                      

1.                     The FEIS meets the requirements of 6 N.Y.C.R.R. Part 617;

 

2.                     Consistent with social, economic and other essential considerations from among the reasonable alternatives available, the action is one that avoids or minimizes adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and

 

3.                     The adverse environmental impacts identified in the FEIS will be minimized or avoided to the maximum extent practicable by incorporating as conditions to the approval, those project components related to the environment and mitigation measures that were identified as practicable. 

 

 

 

The Decision, together with the FEIS, constitutes the written statement of facts, and of social, economic and other factors and standards that form the basis of this determination, 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 Decision and Application, and based on the environmental determination and consideration described in the report, C 190336 ZMX, incorporated by reference herein, and the record before the Council, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission.
