BILL NUMBER:S4455

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the highway law, in relation to adding
the Mountain Cloves scenic byway into the state scenic byways system

PURPOSE:

To add various state, county, and local roads in the Town of Hunter in
Greene County to the New York State Scenic Byway System, and to
designate such roads the "Mountain Cloves Scenic Byway."

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Adds new paragraph j-12 to subdivision 1 of Section 349-dd of the
Highway Law, including the Mountain Cloves Scenic Byway as a component
of the New York State Scenic Byways System.

JUSTIFICATION:

On October 17, 2012 the NYS Scenic Byways Advisory Board recommended
the designation of the "Mountain Cloves Scenic Byway" as a New York
State Scenic Byway.

The proposed 41-mile corridor includes portions of several state,
county, and local roads that are currently designated as Scenic Byways
under paragraph (k) of subdivision 1 of Section 349-dd of the Highway
Law. This proposal would link all the existing scenic road sections
with additional sections to create one continuous scenic byway.

Many benefits accrue to communities through which scenic byways pass,
including: increased economic benefits through tourism; improved
traveler and community services; more careful stewardship of the byway
corridor; and potential federal grants to develop the scenic byway.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

None

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Effective immediately
