Docks for gambling vessels

In all Commercial Districts, except C1 Districts, and in all Manufacturing Districts, the City Planning Commission may permit docks for gambling vessels, provided that, in Commercial Districts, the maximum aggregate dock capacity per zoning lot shall be determined by the zoning district, as indicated in the applicable provisions of Sections 32-18 (Use Group 9) and 32-23 (Use Group 14).

As a condition for permitting such use, the Commission shall find that:

(a)        the streets providing access to such docking facility will be adequate to ensure that the traffic generated will not unduly impede surface traffic and pedestrian flow in the surrounding area;

(b)        any noise and activity related to the docking facility, including vessel operations, will not have a detrimental impact on the waterfront and surrounding area; and

(c)        such use will not be incompatible with the essential character, use or future growth of the waterfront and surrounding area.

Docks for gambling vessels shall comply with all provisions of the Resolution, including the provisions of Article VI, Chapter 2 (Special Regulations Applying in the Waterfront Area), applicable to the type of vessel on which the shipboard gambling business is operated.

The Commission may prescribe additional conditions and safeguards to minimize any adverse effects on the waterfront and surrounding area.

This text amendment shall take effect on April 27, 1998.
