TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the town of Orangetown, county of Rockland to discontinue the use of certain town lands as parkland and to sell and convey such lands
PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To authorize the Town of Orangetown to discontinue the use of certain lands as parkland.
SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1: Authorizes the town to permanently discontinue as parklands the lands described in section three of this act.
Section 2: The authorization provided for in section one of this act shall take effect only on the condition that the Town of Orangetown acquires additional land of equal or greater fair market value than the parkland being permanently discontinued and dedicates such land as parkland.
Section 3: Describes the lands to be permanently discontinued as parklands and alienated and conveyed.
Section 4: The discontinuance and conveyance of parkland authorized by this act must be in compliance with federal requirements.

JUSTIFICATION: The Town is seeking to alienate parkland in the form of an easement in order for Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc. to construct, install, operate and maintain electric transition structures, related facilities and overhead and underground electric transmission wires on town-owned parkland, which will transition the overhead power lines underground to feed the Corporate Drive substation in the Town of Orangetown.
This substation will provide the means for adequate and sufficient electric service to the Corporate Drive area in Orangeburg. Thereby helping to ensure that existing corporate employers and taxpaying ratables, remain a vibrant part of the Orangetown community, and hopefully attract other potential ratables to the area.
This alienation was requested by and has full support of the residences of the surrounding community.
