                     WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission has certified that the Plan for the Area is an appropriate plan for the Area and complies with provisions of Article 15 of the General Municipal Law, and conforms to the comprehensive community plan for the development of the municipality as a whole and is consistent with local objectives;

 

                     WHEREAS, the City Planning Commission has certified its unqualified approval of the Plan pursuant to Section 505 of the General Municipal Law;

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

 

WHEREAS, the Council has considered the relevant environmental issues, including the Negative Declaration issued September 15, 2021 (CEQR No. 19HPD131K) (the “Negative Declaration”).

RESOLVED:

The Council finds that the action described herein will have no significant impact on the environment as set forth in the Negative Declaration.

                     The Council finds that the undertaking and carrying out of the urban renewal activities in stages is in the best public interest and will not cause any additional or increased hardship to the residents of the Area;

 

                     The Council approves the designation of the Area pursuant to Section 504 of the General Municipal Law; and

 

                     The Council approves the amendment of the Plan pursuant to Section 505 of the General Municipal Law and Section 197-d of the Charter.
