AN ACT authorizing the county of Nassau to transfer ownership of certain
  parklands to Conservation Partners, LLC


  Section  1.    The  Nassau county legislature is hereby authorized and
empowered to convey the parkland property described in  section  two  of
this  act, upon terms to be fixed and determined by such county legisla-
ture, to Conservation Partners LLC, which  terms  and  conditions  shall
include  the  placement of a conservation easement on the property to be
conveyed prohibiting  any  future  development  on  the  property.  This
authorization  is  based upon the unique facts and circumstances of this
particular parkland property which include: the  property  was  acquired
for  open  space  protection  purposes  and  does not have any developed
recreational facilities; after conveyance, the open  space  features  of
the  property will be permanently protected through a conservation ease-
ment; and the conveyance is part of a larger  conservation  land  trans-
action  that  will result in a net increase of more than thirty acres of
permanently protected open space in a densely developed area  of  Nassau
  S  2.  The parkland referred to in section one of this act is located,
bounded and described as follows:
  ALL that certain plot, piece or parcel of land with the buildings  and
improvements thereon erected, situate, lying and being in the village of
Oyster  Bay  Cove,  town  of  Oyster Bay, county of Nassau, state of New
York, being bounded and described as follows:
  BEGINNING on the westerly side of Sandy Hill Road distant 1384.16 feet
northerly from the corner formed by the intersection  of  the  northerly
side of Berry Hill Road with the westerly side of Sandy Hill Road;

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