BILL NUMBER:S5905

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize
the commissioner of the office of general services to execute and
deliver a release to the city of Oneonta with respect to certain lands

PURPOSE:
To release the city of Oneonta from the state of New York's
restriction of use of a certain parcel of land.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one - establishes a release reversion clause, authorizing the
release of land obtained by the city of Oneonta in 2004. Such release
extinguishes the reversionary interest of the state of New York and
does not restrict the lawful use of the property by the city of
Oneonta.

Section two - provides the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
This bill comes as a home rule request from the City of Oneonta. The
city obtained the former New York State Armory in 2004 from the State
of New York, now known as the municipal recreation building. The
state retained a clause which limited the use of the property to
"recreational purposes," and if the property was not used for that
purpose, the title would revert to the state. The city is interested
in other uses or the possible sale of the property. This bill removes
the reversion clause from the letter's patent and removes the city's
limitation of use.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

Page 336. Such release shall extinguish the reversionary interest of the
state of New York in such land as provided for in such letters patent as

would restrict the lawful use of such property by the city  of  Oneonta.

cial copy of this act, with the secretary of state.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
