An act requiring the office of parks, recreation and historic

procedure


PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL :
Directs the Commissioner of the Office of Parks, Recreation, and
historic preservation to take certain land by the use of eminent
domain.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS :
Section 1: Legislative findings, Location of site
Section 2: Effective Date

JUSTIFICATION :
This legislation is needed to advance a planned East River waterfront
park that has been stalled for years by the proponents of a proposed
gas fired electric power plant. Through the manipulation of the siting
process and via perverse legal tactics, the power plant applicant has
hindered the release of a final decision by the Public Service Siting
Board for well beyond a reasonable time. This is a park that NYC has
planned and zoned for - with the approval of all electoral and
governmental entities. It is time for the State to be directed take a
bold move to advance the achievement of this park.
