The Department of City Planning issued a Positive Declaration, Environmental Assessment Statement, and Draft Scope of Work for the proposed action on October 8, 2003. The Department held a public hearing to solicit comments on the draft scoping document on November 13, 2003. Based on the public comments a Final Scoping Document was developed and released on June 4, 2004. The final scope of work was used as a framework for preparing a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). A public hearing on the DEIS was held by the City Planning Commission in conjunction with the ULURP process on January 19, 2005. Public comments on the DEIS were received for a ten day period following the January 19 public hearing.
The Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) was completed, and a Notice of Completion of the FEIS was issued on March 4, 2005. The modified applications for the Zoning Map Change (C 050111(A) ZMK) and the Zoning Text Amendment (N 050110(A) ZRK) that were filed on December 22, 2004 by the Department of City Planning were analyzed in the FEIS as the Revised Affordable Housing Bonus and Incentives alternative (Revised AHBI alternative).
