BILL NUMBER:S7214

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
in relation to the conveyance of land formerly used as an armory to the
town of Huntington, county of Suffolk

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To direct the Commissioner of General
Services to transfer and convey approximately 3.6 acres of land
formerly used as the Huntington Station Armory to the Town of
Huntington to enhance its ongoing efforts to revitalize the
Huntington Station area.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 authorizes the commissioner of General Services to transfer
and convey to the town of Huntington in the consideration of one
dollar, approximately 3.6 acres of land.

Section 2 gives the meets and bound of the armory property to be
conveyed.

Section 3 requires the town of Huntington to file an application to
the commissioner of General Services within one year of the effective
date of this act.

Section 4 describes the purposes to which the town of Huntington will
be using this property. The town will utilize the property for
structures and improvements by several departments of the town
including parks and recreation, engineering, general services, public
safety, human and youth service in connection with recreational,
community and civic programs. Upon the termination of said use, the
land shall revert to the State.

Section 5 is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Since 2009, when the New York State Division of Military
and Naval Affairs decided as part of the Department of Defense Base
Realignment and Closure recommendations, to relocate the New York
Army National Guard units housed at the Huntington Station Armory,
the Town of Huntington has had a long-standing interest in the Armory
property, which is located adjacent to a town recreational facility
at Manor Field Park.

As part of its on going effort to revitalize the Huntington Station
area, the town recently invested over $2 million to rehabilitate the
Manor Field Park, adding synthetic turf field, new lighting and
bleachers, and other improvements.

The Town will incorporate the Armory property into the existing park.
The Armory building would house park support operations and the space
is well suited to offer enhanced programming for the Huntington
Station community with other Town departments which also serve this
community's needs.
Merging the Armory property into the park would help accelerate
Huntington Station revitalization and restore a Town presence through
community development.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
