BILL NUMBER:S7276

TITLE OF BILL: An act authorizing the town of Cortlandville, county
of Cortland to alienate and convey certain parcels of land used as
parkland and to acquire other parcels of land to replace such parkland

PURPOSE: To alienate and convey certain parcels of land in the town of
Cortlandville.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 gives home rule authorization to the
town of Cortlandville, county of Cortland, to discontinue, alienate
and convey certain parcels of park land. Section 2 states that the
validity of the conveyance authorization is contingent upon the
dedication of an amount equal to or greater than the fair market value
of the lands to be acquired for park purposes. Section 3 identifies
the parcels of land to be alienated and conveyed. Section 4 requires
the satisfaction of applicable federal requirements pertaining to the
conversion of park lands before conveying such lands. Section 5
provides the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: The opportunity for the town of Cortlandville to
acquire approximately 90 acres of land for park purposes in exchange
for 6.1 acres of park land presents a valuable opportunity to provide
additional park facilities for public enjoyment at little or no cost
to the town. This bill will help facilitate this transaction by
providing home rule authorization to the town of Cortlandville for the
purpose of alienating and conveying park lands identified in Section
3.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediate.
