New York City - The City Planning Commission of the City of New York, as lead agency has determined that the proposed Zoning Text Amendment Pertaining to Signs in C6-9 Zoning Districts in the Special Lower Manhattan District will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves amending the Zoning Resolution Section 91-13 to allow modification of ZR Section 32-655 regulations governing signs in C6-9 districts in the Special Lower Manhattan District. The new text would allow permitted signs at a maximum height of 50 feet above curb level. One area of the project is located in C 6-9 district bounded by South Street on the east, Vietnam Veterans Plaza on the south, Water Street on the west, and Maiden Lane, Front Street, and Pine Street on the north. The other C6-9 district is bounded by Greenwich Street on the east, Morris Street and the pedestrian passageway extending east from Morris Street from Washington to Greenwich streets on the south, West Street on the west, and Liberty Street on the north.
