TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 397 of the laws of 1996, relating to authorizing the town of Islip to lease certain lands to a business corporation, in relation to the lease term
PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To extend the term of any lease for any parkland located in Hidden Pond Park to be for an additional ten years after the date of its expiration.
SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill amends subdivision (a) of section 1 of chapter 397 of the laws of 1996 by extending the terms of a lease between the town and a business corporation dated July 20, 1996 that was authorized by chapter 397 of the laws of 1996 on the lands described in chapter 397 of the laws of 1996 for up to ten additional years from the date of its expiration.
JUSTIFICATION: On July 30, 1996, New York State enacted a law entitled the "Laws of New York, Chapter 397", which authorized the Town of Islip to lease certain municipally-owned parkland located in Hidden Pond Park, Hauppauge, to a business corporation. The Law authorized the term of any lease to be for a period of thirty years.
The Parkland lease to a business corporation has provided the citizens of Hauppauge with sports and recreation opportunities for close to sixteen years. The Town of Islip wishes to extend the maximum period a business can lease the municipally-owned land for additional ten years from the date of its expiration. Facilities like "The Rinx" at Hidden Pond are essential in providing the public with entertainment.
