Following the issuance of the Notice of Completion for the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Coney Island Rezoning project, the City Planning Commission (CPC) adopted modifications to the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) applications, the Special Coney Island District zoning text amendment and an administrative change to the form of the mapping application. Those modifications and administrative change were assessed in a Technical Memorandum (CEQR Number 08DME007K TM001) dated June 15, 2009. The New York City Council is now proposing additional modifications as a result of its review of the applications and comments made during the public review process. The Council's proposed modifications, and whether they would result in any new or different adverse environmental impacts not previously disclosed in the FEIS, are described and examined in a second Technical Memorandum (CEQR Number 08DME007K TM002) dated July 22, 2009. This Technical Memorandum concludes that the proposed modification would not result in any significant adverse environmental impacts not previously identified in the FEIS.
