BILL NUMBER:S5534

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the parks, recreation and historic preservation law, in
relation to expanding the Susquehanna Heritage Area

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To expand the Susquehanna Heritage
Area to include all of Broome & Tioga Counties.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section
1: Amends paragraph (h) of subdivision I of section 35.03 of the
parks, recreation, and historic preservation law to expand the
Susquehanna Heritage Area to include all of Broome and Tioga Counties.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Susquehanna Heritage Area Management Plan Amendment represents a
major achievement for historic, cultural and recreational planning in
the Southern Tier. Since its inception as an urban cultural park in
1982, the Susquehanna Heritage Area (SHA) has been a statewide leader
in promoting stewardship and appreciation of historical and cultural
resources in the original three communities (Binghamton, Johnson
City, and Endicott). It has developed numerous education and
cultural programs, sponsored National Register nominations, and
secured ants. In expanding the area to include all of Broome and
Tioga Counties, the SHA has taken a more inclusive approach to
regional history and extended the benefits of its knowledge and
expertise to a number of smaller, rural communities that have not yet
had much involvement with preservation planning or with state and
federal preservation programs.
The SHA's expertise will be extremely valuable partnership in these
communities.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
None.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
