BILL NUMBER:S6448A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the city of New York to acquire,
by eminent domain, a certain parcel of real property in the borough of
Brooklyn

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

Permits the use of eminent domain for a certain parcel of real
property.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Amends the session laws to permit the seizure of a certain parcel of
real property.

JUSTIFICATION:

This bill shall allow the use of eminent domain seize a parcel of real
property which was built with substantial public funds for the express
purpose of serving the public good. Since a government entity invested
substantial taxpayer funding to pay for the construction on that
parcel of a property for the express purpose of providing important
social and community services to a community, the government most have
the right to acquire such property to preserve its investment and to
continue its use for the public benefit. This legislation seeks to
protect the public's substantial financial interest in the property
and presumes that substantial government financial investment in such
property warrants government ownership especially when an individual
or corporation seek to exploit that investment for another use for
which it was never intended.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New for 2014

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately.
