TITLE OF BILL: An act authorizing the transfer of certain state lands in the town of Orangetown
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 authorizes the commissioner of the Office of General Services to transfer unappropriated state lands located within the bounds set forth in section two of this act. Requires the town to notify the state within 90 days of lands becoming unappropriated whether the town is interested in such lands. This section further provides the town with 120 days to negotiate a sale for the acquisition of such lands.
Section 2 establishes the boundaries of the area in the town of Orangetown where state lands subject to the right of first negotiation are located. The bounds capture the land associated with the Rockland Psychiatric Center.
Section 3 provides that this act shall not affect any person's contract rights or right to sue.
Section 4 provides that land transactions authorized by this act are subject to accurate surveys and any existing covenants, conditions, restrictions, easements and rights-of-way.
JUSTIFICATION: The Town of Orangetown has requested this legislation in order to develop state lands at or near the Rockland Psychiatric Center site. This will benefit the community by helping to stimulate the local economy by facilitating the development of high technology industries and by developing low-density residential neighborhoods suitable for the local senior citizen population.
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Needs to be determined.
EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
