Memo

BILL NUMBER:S7620A

TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to the alienation and substitution of certain parklands in the town of Southampton in the county of Suffolk

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

Relates to the alienation and substitution of certain parklands in the Town of Southampton in the County of Suffolk.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Authorizes the Town of Southampton to discontinue as parklands and alienate the lands described in Section three of this act.

Section 2. Makes authorization to discontinue effective only upon dedication of lands described in Section four as parklands.

Section 3. Describes the lands to be discontinued as parklands.

Section 4. Describes the lands to be dedicated as parklands.

Section 5. Provides that in the event that the parklands to be dedicated by the town of Southampton pursuant to this act are not equal to or greater than the fair market value of the parkland to be discontinued, the Town of Southampton shall dedicate the difference of the fair market value of the lands to be alienated and the lands to be dedicated for the acquisition of additional parklands and/or for capital improvements to existing park and recreational facilities.

Section 6. Provides that discontinuance shall not occur until the town of Southampton has complied with any federal requirements.

Section 7. Immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

The Riverside traffic circle in the Town of Southampton is very busy and dangerous; a point at which five major road arteries intersect. The current configuration results in considerable traffic delays, long waiting queues, and traffic on all approaching roads. There is also a high incidence of rear-end collisions. In an effort to increase the efficiency of the circle, reduce congestion and improve the safety of motorists, cyclists and pedestrians, the Suffolk County Department of Public Works conducted a thorough and extensive investigation of the traffic circle corridor and evaluated over twenty possible alternatives. The most feasible preferred option would require the use of a parcel owned by the Town of Southampton for part of the improvement. With the support of Southampton Town, Suffolk County has agreed to essentially swap an abutting County parcel in exchange for use of the Town parcel.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Legislation, 2014

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
