BILL NUMBER: S2768A

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to authorize the city of New York to discontinue use of and
convey certain park land


PURPOSE :
To authorize the city of New York to discontinue use of certain park
land and convey it to the St. Michael's cemetery.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Section 1. Authorizes the city of New York to discontinue use as park
land and to convey, in fee simple, the land described in section three
of this act to Saint Michael's Cemetery.

Section 2. Provides that the authorization of this act shall be
subject to the requirement that the city of New York shall use any
proceeds and/or land received in exchange for the conveyance
authorized by this act to acquire land, to be dedicated for park
purposes in an amount equal to or greater than the fair market value
of the land being conveyed.

Section 3. Describes the boundaries of the land authorized to be
discontinued as park land and conveyed to St. Michael's Cemetery.

JUSTIFICATION :
This legislation would allow St. Michael's Cemetery, located in
Astoria, Queens to acquire a small strip of park land that is
underutilized and in disrepair located adjacent to the cemetery.

St. Michael's Cemetery has agreed to transfer a replacement parcel of
land to the city of New York in order to replace the park land
acquired and ensure that the western Queens community does not lose
valuable green space.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
None.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect immediately.
