West Chelsea Zoning Proposal - Approved!
EIS - Final Environmental Impact Statement
Introduction | Background & Existing Conditions | Proposal | EIS | Timeline

This Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) has been prepared in conformance with applicable laws and regulations, including Executive Order No. 91, New York City Environmental Quality Review (CEQR) regulations, and follows the guidance of the CEQR Technical Manual, October 2001.

The FEIS includes review and analysis of all impact categories identified in the CEQR Technical Manual, including a a description and analysis of the proposed action and its environmental setting; the environmental impacts of the proposed action, including its short- and long-term effects, and typical associated environmental effects; identification of any significant adverse environmental effects that can be avoided through incorporation of corrective measures into the proposed action; a discussion of alternatives to the proposed action; the identification of any irreversible and irretrievable commitments of resources that would be involved in the proposed action should it be implemented; and a description of any necessary mitigation measures proposed to minimize significant adverse environmental impacts.

The Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the proposed action was accepted as complete by the New York City Department of City Planning as lead agency on December 20, 2004. Public notice of completion of the DEIS and a public hearing on the DEIS was published in the City Record, Environmental News Bulletin, and New York Sun on March 16, 2005.

The City Planning Commission held a public hearing at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center of the Borough of Manhattan Community College, Theatre Two, 199 Chambers Street, Manhattan, on April 6, 2005 at 10 AM. The period for public review remained open until April 18, 2005.

The FEIS reflects all substantive comments made on the DEIS during the public hearing and subsequent comment period. The comments are summarized and responded to in Chapter 27 “Response to Comments.” Changes to the text and graphics of the FEIS were also made in response to comments. In addition, Chapter 23, “Alternatives” of the FEIS has been modified to add an analysis of a Revised Community Board 4 Alternative and a Revised Affordable Housing Alternative. The Revised Affordable Housing Alternative (Alternative F) was developed by the Department of City Planning in response to comments received during the public review process for the DEIS. This alternative reflects the Department’s modified ULURP application [(N 050161(A) ZRM) and (C050162(A) ZMM)] for the zoning map and text amendments. This alternative reflects changes made in regard to bulk, density and affordable housing. This alternative modifies and replaces the Affordable Housing Alternative analyzed in the DEIS.

The FEIS also includes one new appendix, Appendix H, which contains all written comments received during the public review period. In addition, the zoning text amendment for the Revised Affordable Housing Alternative has been added to Appendix A and the reasonable worst-case development scenario has been added to Appendix G.
