Memo

BILL NUMBER:S4838

TITLE OF BILL:

An act to amend chapter 709 of the laws of 2005, relating to authorizing the commissioner of general services to convey certain land in Queens county to the city of New York department of parks and recreation, in relation to omitting the requirement that the property be conveyed within one year

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

In 2005 A8421A was chaptered; this law allows for the transfer of state land to the New York City Parks Department by the commissioner of New York State Office of General Services. However, there was a requirement that this property be conveyed in one year, unfortunately the New York City parks department and Queens County could not complete this transfer within this one year period. This bill removes this requirement so that this transfer marl, be completed at an appropriate time.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill amends chapter 709 of the laws of 2005 to omit the requirement that property in Queens county be conveyed to the city of New York department of parks and recreation within one year.

Section 2 of the bill provides for this act to take effect immediately

JUSTIFICATION:

The state property described in this legislation is located behind P.S. 16 in Queens County and is unutilized by the state, and the New York City Parks Department will be able to clean the property and expand an existing recreation area. Removing the requirement that the transfer must be completed in a year would allow this planned transfer to occur.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

Same As A.4791 (Weprin)

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS:

To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
