BILL NUMBER:S186

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the general municipal law, in relation to notice of certain
municipal actions

PURPOSE:
This bill would require county planning agencies or in the absence of
a county planning agency, regional planning councils to give notice
of any proposed action to any municipality within the county which is
within five hundred feet of the property being affected.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1. - Amends Subdivision 2 of section 239-m of the general
municipal law to require regional planning councils or county
planning agencies to give notice to any municipality in the county
that is within 500 feet of the proposed action.

Section 2. Is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Under current law only residents within the same municipality are
needed to be notified of certain actions. It is only fair to
surrounding communities that they get the same kind of reporting
notification to insure that they are made aware of changes to the
area in which they reside. This legislation would require a formal
notice to any municipality which is within the standard 500 feet of
the proposed action. It is good planning practice to advise
neighboring affected communities.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

S4414 of 2003/2004: Referred to Senate Local Governments Committee
S.24 of 2005/2006: Referred to Senate Local Governments Committee
S.59 of 2007/2008: Referred to Senate Local Governments Committee
S.318 of 2009/2010: Referred to Senate Local Governments Committee

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the thirtieth day after
it shall have become a law.
