BILL NUMBER:S7620A

TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to the alienation and substitution
of certain parklands in the town of Southampton in the county of
Suffolk

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

Relates to the alienation and substitution of certain parklands in the
Town of Southampton in the County of Suffolk.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Authorizes the Town of Southampton to discontinue as
parklands and alienate the lands described in Section three of this
act.

Section 2. Makes authorization to discontinue effective only upon
dedication of lands described in Section four as parklands.

Section 3. Describes the lands to be discontinued as parklands.

Section 4. Describes the lands to be dedicated as parklands.

Section 5. Provides that in the event that the parklands to be
dedicated by the town of Southampton pursuant to this act are not
equal to or greater than the fair market value of the parkland to be
discontinued, the Town of Southampton shall dedicate the difference of
the fair market value of the lands to be alienated and the lands to be
dedicated for the acquisition of additional parklands and/or for
capital improvements to existing park and recreational facilities.

Section 6. Provides that discontinuance shall not occur until the town
of Southampton has complied with any federal requirements.

Section 7. Immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

The Riverside traffic circle in the Town of Southampton is very busy
and dangerous; a point at which five major road arteries intersect.
The current configuration results in considerable traffic delays, long
waiting queues, and traffic on all approaching roads. There is also a
high incidence of rear-end collisions. In an effort to increase the
efficiency of the circle, reduce congestion and improve the safety of
motorists, cyclists and pedestrians, the Suffolk County Department of
Public Works conducted a thorough and extensive investigation of the
traffic circle corridor and evaluated over twenty possible
alternatives. The most feasible preferred option would require the use
of a parcel owned by the Town of Southampton for part of the
improvement. With the support of Southampton Town, Suffolk County has
agreed to essentially swap an abutting County parcel in exchange for
use of the Town parcel.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Legislation, 2014


FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
