BILL NUMBER:S7318

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public authorities law, in
relation to authorizing the New York state olympic regional
development authority to operate and manage ski and recreational
facilities on lands in the vicinity of the Belleayre Mountain ski
center, in Ulster and Delaware counties

PURPOSE:

The legislation, if enacted, would authorize the Olympic Regional
Development Authority (ORDA) to operate and manage ski and
recreational facilities located on properties in the vicinity of the
Belleayre Mountain ski center.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 2614 of the Public Authorities Law is amended to allow for
this contractual authority.

EXISTING LAW:

No current legislative authority exists for this public-private
partnership, however, it is important to note that in 2000, Chapter
192 was enacted to allow ORDA to operate such facilities on the lands
of the Town of Johnsburgh.

JUSTIFICATION:

Authorizing ORDA to operate and manage ski and recreational facilities
located on properties in the vicinity of the Belleayre Mountain ski
center will considerably enhance recreational opportunities for local
residents and the general public, and at the same time will contribute
to Belleayre Mountain ski center's effectiveness as an economic engine
for the central Catskills region.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to the state

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediate
