WHEREAS, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), filed an application, pursuant to Section 197-c of the New York City Charter for the  disposition of city-owned property located at 303 East 102nd Street (Block 1674, Lot 104), 338 East 117th Street (Block 1688, Lot 34), 505-507 East 118th Street (Block 1815, Lots 5 and 6), and 1761-1763 Park Avenue (Block 1771, Lots 1 and 2), Borough of Manhattan, Community District 11 (ULURP No. C 210428 PPM) (the “Application”);

 

WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission filed with the Council on October 8, 2021 its decision dated October 6, 2021 (the “Decision”) on the Application;

 

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

WHEREAS, by letter dated October 6, 2021 and submitted to the Council on October 6, 2021, HPD submitted its requests (the “HPD Requests”) respecting the Application;

                           WHEREAS, upon due notice, the Council held a public hearing on the Application and Decision on October 26, 2021;

 

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

 

WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the Positive Declaration issued February 17th, 2021 (CEQR No. 20HPD002M) and a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for which a Notice of Completion was issued on September 22nd, 2021. As analyzed in the FEIS, the proposed project identified significant adverse shadow impacts on the Jackie Robinson Community Garden and an open space impact, and the identified adverse impacts and proposed mitigation measures under the proposed actions are summarized in Chapter 10 “Mitigation” of the FEIS.

 

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 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 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 Section 197-d of the New York City Charter, based on the environmental determination and the consideration described in the report C 210428 PPM and incorporated by reference herein, and the record before the Council, the Council approves the Decision for the disposition of the City-owned property located at 303 East 102nd Street (Block 1674, Lot 104), 338 East 117th Street (Block 1688, Lot 34), 505-507 East 118th Street (Block 1815, Lots 5 and 6), and 1761-1763 Park Avenue (Block 1771, Lots 1 and 2).
