In the Matter of Chinese Staff & Workers' Assoc., 124

In plaintiffs' suit against the Department of City Planning (DCP), seeking to annul the negative declaration on the ground that DCP's environmental review of a proposed rezoning of a park in a residential area was not in compliance with New York State Environmental Quality Review Act, and the City Environmental Quality Review rules, the Appellate Division's dismissal of the suit is affirmed, as the DCP neither abused its discretion nor was arbitrary or capricious when it issued a negative declaration determining that the proposed rezoning would have no significant adverse effect on the environment.
