96-60 Special Permit Procedure
An application to the City Planning Commission for the grant of a special permit under the provisions of this Chapter, shall include a site plan showing the location and proposed use of all buildings or other structures on the site, the location of all vehicular entrances and exits and off-street parking spaces, and such other information as may be required by the Commission.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the Eighth Avenue Perimeter Area, all applications made pursuant to the Special Midtown District shall be subject to the guidelines and provisions of Article VIII, Chapter 1 (Special Midtown District), instead.
All applications relating to Section 96-111 (Off-street parking regulations) shall be referred by the Commission to the Department of Transportation for its report with respect to the anticipated traffic congestion resulting from such special permit use in the proposed location.
If such agency shall report thereon within one month from the date of referral, the Commission shall, in its determination, give due consideration to such report and, further, shall have the power to substantiate the appropriate findings solely on the basis of the report by such agency with respect to the issues referred. If such agency does not report within one month, the Commission may make a final determination without reference thereto.
In all cases, the City Planning Commission shall deny a special permit application whenever the development or enlargement will interfere with a public improvement project, including housing, highways, public buildings or facilities, redevelopment or renewal projects, or rights-of-way for sewers, transit, or other public facilities, which is approved by, or pending before, the Board of Estimate or City Planning Commission, as determined from the Calendar of each such agency issued prior to the date of the public hearing on the application for a special permit.
