BILL NUMBER:S6782B

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the county of Nassau to transfer ownership of certain parklands to the Oyster Bay Water District

PURPOSE: This bill authorizes Nassau County to convey fee simple title in a vacant parcel of passive parkland in the Village of Oyster Bay Cove to the Oyster Bay Water District.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: The County is authorized by this bill to convey certain passive park property to the Oyster Bay Water District. Prior to or concurrent with the conveyance, the County must designate certain other lands as parklands to be placed in the County's park trust.

JUSTIFICATION: This Bill would enable the Oyster Bay Water District (the "District") to construct a well on a 0.53 acre parcel of County property known as the Tiffany Creek Preserve, which parcel is adjacent to a facility already owned by the District. The well is needed to facilitate the supply of clean drinking water in Nassau County, and will promote the health, safety and welfare of the general public. In addition, for facilitating this transfer, the County will be permitted to attach communications antennae to the District's water tower adjacent to the parcel to be conveyed. These antennae will be used by the Nassau County Police Department. Finally, a 4.3 acre parcel of property to be acquired by the County from the State of New York will be dedicated as parkland by the County to replace the portion of the Tiffany Creek Preserve being transferred to the District. This will result in the overall addition of parkland for enjoyment by the general public.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
