LAVALLE -- read twice and ordered print- ed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Transporta- tion IN ASSEMBLY -- Introduced by M. of A. THIELE -- read once and referred to the Committee on Corporations, Authorities and Commissions AN ACT to amend the public authorities law, in relation to granting the power of site plan review to towns and villages over railroad facili- ties of the metropolitan transportation authority THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature hereby finds that pursuant to title 11 of article 5 of the public authorities law, the metropolitan transportation authority operates railroad facilities with- in the state of New York, including stations, terminals, platforms and other buildings, structures, and improvements. Historically, the legis- lature has exempted the metropolitan transportation authority from the local laws, ordinances, resolutions, and rules and regulations of poli- tical subdivisions, including but not limited to zoning and land use regulations. The legislature hereby finds that it is necessary and desirable to now subject the metropolitan transportation authority to limited municipal authority with regard to site plan review of railroad facilities. Specifically, railroad facilities established by the metropolitan trans- portation authority, including stations, terminals, platforms, and other buildings, structures, and improvements are located in communities throughout the metropolitan transportation authority service area. Many of these railroad facilities are centrally located in these communities and are an integral part of the character and history of these communi- ties. EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted. LBD03790-01-1
