TITLE OF BILL: An act authorizing the town of Cortlandville, county of Cortland to alienate and convey certain parcels of land used as parkland and to acquire other parcels of land to replace such parkland

PURPOSE: To alienate and convey certain parcels of land in the town of Cortlandville.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 gives home rule authorization to the town of Cortlandville, county of Cortland, to discontinue, alienate and convey certain parcels of park land. Section 2 states that the validity of the conveyance authorization is contingent upon the dedication of an amount equal to or greater than the fair market value of the lands to be acquired for park purposes. Section 3 identifies the parcels of land to be alienated and conveyed. Section 4 requires the satisfaction of applicable federal requirements pertaining to the conversion of park lands before conveying such lands. Section 5 provides the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: The opportunity for the town of Cortlandville to acquire approximately 90 acres of land for park purposes in exchange for 6.1 acres of park land presents a valuable opportunity to provide additional park facilities for public enjoyment at little or no cost to the town. This bill will help facilitate this transaction by providing home rule authorization to the town of Cortlandville for the purpose of alienating and conveying park lands identified in Section 3.
