BILL NUMBER:S7323

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

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To direct the
Commissioner of General
Services to transfer the former NYS Armory to the Town of Brookhaven
to enhance public safety and afford the Town an opportunity to
continue to improve the recreational youth programs hosted at the
former NYS Armory site.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 authorizes the commissioner
of General Services to convey land formerly used as an armory to the
Town of Brookhaven in consideration of one dollar.

Section 2 gives a description of the property.

Section 3 requires an application within one year of the act.

Section 4 provides that the property shall be used for public safety,
general municipal uses, highway department uses, and recreation. Upon
termination of said use, the land shall revert to the State.

JUSTIFICATION:
As the use of this property as an armory has been discontinued, the
Town of Brookhaven desires to acquire the property and use the
property and buildings on the site for general municipal and
recreation purposes by the town Highway and Parks and Recreation
Departments.

The improvements that exist on the site in the main building are well
suited for use as a recreation and community center. In addition, the
older building to the rear of the property and the nearby paved area
with a repair and storage yard are useful for many municipal
government purposes.

This site is centrally located in the Town near two local schools that
would benefit from recreational opportunities at this facility.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
