Memo

BILL NUMBER:S5663

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to the leasing of property in the environs of a tennis stadium and center in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in the borough of Queens and to replace certain descriptions of property subject to such property lease and to rededicate certain property as park land

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill repeals paragraphs 1 through 3 of subdivision c of section 18-128 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York and replaces them with new paragraphs 1 and 2 to indicate new metes and bounds subject to lease for a tennis stadium and center.

Section 2 of the bill adds a new subdivision d to section 18-128 of the Code to set forth metes and bounds of two tracts of land being removed from the tennis stadium and center lease and rededicated, as park land. Further, it provides that the USTA National Tennis Center Incorporated (defined as "NTC" in section 18128(a)) may be granted permission to make exclusive use of the parcels described in new subdivision d of section 18-128 for the dates of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, qualifying tournament and for the set up and removal of structures and equipment associated with the tournament.

Section 3 provides that the act shall take effect immediately.

REASONS FOR SUPPORT:

This bill would amend the Administrative Code of the city of New York to provide for a .68-acre expanded boundary for the tennis stadium and center, Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, a public tennis facility that is part of Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens and to remove from the boundaries permitted to be leased a total of 1.56 acres. The approval would allow for the disposition of 0.68 acres of City property by long-term lease to the USTA National Tennis Center Incorporated ("NTC"), an affiliate of the United States Tennis Association Incorporated and operator of the tennis center, to facilitate the improvement and expansion of the tennis center. The area to be added to the leased premises for the tennis stadium and center consists of approximately 29,534 square feet (0.68 acres) of an existing park, Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, and is located along the southern boundary of the tennis center. The premises currently contain a landscape border to the tennis center, a park pathway and pathway median with trees. The park pathway is one of three pathways used by park patrons to stroll and recreate within the park. The two remaining pathways will not be affected by the project. The parcel will allow for the shift of the grandstand stadium and the southern tennis courts with a fenced, landscaped border to improve safety and circulation, an essential part of a plan to sustain the long-term viability of the tennis center as a world class spectator venue and outstanding public recreational facility.

The NTC proposes to return to the City two parcels of park land that are currently part of the premises alienated and leased to the NTC. The replacement park land totals 1.56 acres, comprising a 0.75-acre

landscaped area and 0.81 acres of space for active recreation and containing 5 tennis courts. These parcels are currently included in the parcels leased to the NTC. The parcels contain practice tennis courts used during the US Open and other major tennis tournaments. The two parcels being removed from the leased property are:

(1) A 1.31-acre parcel located southeast of David Dinkins Circle, occupied by five tennis courts and 0.5 acres of landscaped areas. When not in use by the NTC, these courts are used by the City Parks Foundation, a not for profit organization that provides free and accessible arts, sports, education and community-building programs within New York City parks, for lessons, hourly rentals, tournaments, leagues and special events. A portion of this parcel located along the eastern edge of the tennis courts is alienated but not included in the tennis center lease. The area included in the lease is 1.16 acres.

(2) A 0.25-acre landscaped parcel located just beyond the eastern end of the bank of six tennis courts to the east of the Passerelle.

With the proposed changes, these two parcels of park land would no longer be alienated land and would be returned to Flushing Meadows-Corona Park for recreational use under the jurisdiction of the Department of Parks and Recreation. The tennis center lease would also be amended, so these parcels would not be part of the tennis center premises. Other than the tennis courts, the replacement park land is not fenced, so the landscaped portions of these parcels would be available as passive open space, accessible to any member of the public. The NTC would have no control over these parcels, except during the US Open when they shall have up to 30 days of use of the five tennis courts. The NTC would remain responsible for maintenance and repair of the tennis courts on an annual basis, so that they continue to be available in good condition for public use.

The New York City Department of Parks and Recreation supports the amendments proposed in this bill, including the addition to the leased premises of the 0.68-acre parcel as part of the property described in section 1 of the bill and the removal from the leased premises (and the re-dedication as park land) of the part of the property described in section 2 of the bill. In addition, the NTC is committed to financially support Flushing Meadows-Corona Park and will work with the Department of Parks and Recreation to facilitate park improvements to compensate for the 0.68-acre parcel to be added to the NTC leased premises.

Accordingly, the Mayor urges the earliest possible favorable consideration of this proposal by the Legislature.
