BILL NUMBER:S2404

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize the town of Orangetown, county of Rockland to discontinue
the use of certain town lands as parkland and to sell and convey such
lands

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To authorize the Town of Orangetown
to discontinue the use of certain lands as parkland.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1: Authorizes the town to
permanently discontinue as parklands the lands described in section
three of this act.

Section 2: The authorization provided for in section one of this act
shall take effect only on the condition that the Town of Orangetown
acquires additional land of equal or greater fair market value than
the parkland being permanently discontinued and dedicates such land
as parkland.

Section 3: Describes the lands to be permanently discontinued as
parklands and alienated and conveyed.

Section 4: The discontinuance and conveyance of parkland authorized by
this act must be in compliance with federal requirements.

Section 5: Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Town is seeking to alienate parkland in the form of
an easement in order for Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc. to
construct, install, operate and maintain electric transition
structures, related facilities and overhead and underground electric
transmission wires on town-owned parkland, which will transition the
overhead power lines underground to feed the Corporate Drive
substation in the Town of Orangetown.

This substation will provide the means for adequate and sufficient
electric service to the Corporate Drive area in Orangeburg. Thereby
helping to ensure that existing corporate employers and taxpaying
ratables, remain a vibrant part of the Orangetown community, and
hopefully attract other potential ratables to the area.

This alienation was requested by and has full support of the
residences of the surrounding community.
