WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on September 10, 2021, its decision dated September 1, 2021 (the “Decision”) on the Application;

 

                     WHEREAS, the Application is related to applications C 210289 ZMR (L.U. No. 842), a zoning map amendment to (a) rezoning a R6 zoning district with a C2-2 overlay at a depth 100 feet within the SHPD to an R7-3 zoning district with a C2-4 commercial overlay at a depth of 185 feet and to be located within the SSGD; and (b) rezoning a R6 zoning district with a C2-2 overlay to a R6 zoning district with a C2-4 overlay and to be located within the SSGD;  and N 210290 ZRR (L.U. No. 843), a zoning text amendment to the Special St. George District (SSGD) to establish bulk regulations for R7 zoning districts, a new special permit to modify bulk and other requirements, and establish a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing Area;

 

WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d of the City Charter;

 

WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission has made the findings required pursuant to Section 128-62 of the Zoning Resolution of the City of New York;

 

WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Decision and Application on September 24, 2021;

 

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, issued on October 16th, 2020 (CEQR No. 20DCP140R) and a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on August 20, 2021, which identified significant adverse impacts related to hazardous materials, noise, and air quality would be avoided through the placement of (E) designations (E-614) on the project sites.  The proposed project, as analyzed in the FEIS, also identified significant adverse impacts with respect to open space (active), transportation (vehicular traffic), and construction (vehicular traffic, noise) and mitigation measures are included in the Restrictive Declaration.

 

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 thereto, the action is one which minimizes or avoids adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable; and

 

(3)                     The adverse environmental impacts disclosed in the FEIS will be minimized or avoided to the maximum extent practicable by incorporating, as conditions to the approval, pursuant to the restrictive declaration attached as Exhibit A to City Planning Commission report for C 210291 ZSR, those project components related to environment and mitigation measures that were identified as practicable.

 

The Decision, together with the FEIS constitute 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 201 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 210291 ZSR, incorporated by reference herein, and the record before the Council, the Council approves the Decision of the City Planning Commission with the following modifications:

 

Matter double struck out is old, deleted by the City Council;

Matter double-underlined is new, added by the City Council.
