BILL NUMBER:S2177

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 759 of the laws of 1973 relating
to the transfer of lands to the United States for the establishment of
the Gateway National Recreation Area, in relation to the time period in
which lands may be conveyed

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This legislation extends the time peri-
od during which lands may be transferred to U.S. for establishment of
the Gateway National Recreational Area.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1. Section 5 of chapter 759 of
the laws of 1973 relating to the transfer of lands to the United States
for the establishment of the Gateway National Recreational Area, as
amended by chapter 85 of the laws of 2008, is amended to read as
follows: Section 5. All such lands shall be ceded, granted and conveyed
to the United States on or before May 1, 2015

JUSTIFICATION: The Gateway National Recreational Area plan is an innova-
tive approach to the creation of urban park space. Gateway will combine
recreational facilities with educational programs and an organized
effort to attract the population of the entire region which this Federal
project will serve.

The process of assembling the scattered properties (situated in three of
the City's counties and in New Jersey) which will ultimately comprise
Gateway is not yet completed, in part because the plan to create the
park has taken into account the need for input from the communities it
will adjoin as well as those it will serve. As amended, this legislation
would mandate timely applicable community board and borough board
notification and review of any future property to be ceded or conveyed
as part of Gateway.

In order to permit the Gateway project to take shape at a rate which
permits the participation of the parties interested in the area's ulti-
mate success, this bill extends by two years the deadline for transfer
of those properties still held by the State and City of New York which
are included in the Gateway plan.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2006: S.6536 - Signed Chapter 85 - 2 year
extension. This legislation has been introduced and signed into law
every two years since 1974.
