Authorizes the city of New York to acquire by eminent domain a certain parcel of real property in the borough of Brooklyn for a public project.
TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the city of New York to acquire, by eminent domain, a certain parcel of real property in the borough of Brooklyn
PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
Permits the use of eminent domain for a certain parcel of real property.
SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Amends the session laws to permit the seizure of a certain parcel of real property.
This bill shall allow the use of eminent domain seize a parcel of real property which was built with substantial public funds for the express purpose of serving the public good. Since a government entity invested substantial taxpayer funding to pay for the construction on that parcel of a property for the express purpose of providing important social and community services to a community, the government most have the right to acquire such property to preserve its investment and to continue its use for the public benefit. This legislation seeks to protect the public's substantial financial interest in the property and presumes that substantial government financial investment in such property warrants government ownership especially when an individual or corporation seek to exploit that investment for another use for which it was never intended.
