  Parks and Recreation

AN ACT to amend the arts and cultural affairs law, the real property tax
  law and the tax law, in relation to the  establishment  of  arts-based
  districts;  and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expi-
  ration thereof

  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
artists and related creative professions have high  community  value  as
cultural,  social  and economic assets. When they live and work in iden-
tifiable districts the opportunity exists for capitalizing for the bene-
fit of residents of the district and  the  community  at  large  through
enhancing  quality  of  life  and  supporting  elements of a tourism and
artist economy.
  The legislature further finds that the cities of New York state have a
long tradition of artistic creative activities and  major  artistic  and
cultural  institutions  including  being the home to some of the world's
major art museums and performing arts venues.
  The legislature further finds that collaboration  between  cities  and
the  state  offers  the  opportunity  to establish viable and productive
arts-based districts capable of becoming a model for cities and villages
throughout the state.
  Therefore, the legislature  hereby  provides  for  an  optional  pilot
program  for the cities of Albany, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Troy
to establish arts-based districts in their cities.
  S 2. Article 16 and section 16.01 of the arts and cultural affairs law
are redesignated article 17 and section 17.01, and a new article  16  is
added to read as follows:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD01095-03-1
