AN ACT to amend the general municipal law, in relation  to  establishing
  the enterprise park at Calverton revitalization commission

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative findings and intent. The former Calverton Naval
Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant in the town  of  Riverhead,  county  of
Suffolk (hereinafter "EPCAL"), was formerly owned by the Navy and leased
by  the Grumman Corporation. In 1998, Northrop Grumman closed nearly all
facilities located on Long Island and chose not to renew its  lease  for
the  EPCAL  site causing economic dislocation and unemployment for resi-
dents of the town of Riverhead and  the  surrounding  region.  The  Navy
conveyed 2900 acres to the town of Riverhead Community Development Agen-
cy ("CDA") for no consideration conditioned upon the town's reuse of the
property for economic development.
  In  2011,  the  town  and  CDA re-dedicated their efforts and invested
significant funds to update, develop and implement a reuse and revitali-
zation plan to meet the current economic, market  and  site  conditions.
The  town and CDA, with the assistance of a firm with expertise in plan-
ning and environmental  analysis  for  large  scale  revitalization  and
development  projects,  updated  the  real estate market study; retained
experts in the field of engineering, survey and topographical  analysis;
retained  experts  in the fields of sewer and water; and met with state,
regional and local departments, agencies and special interest groups  to
identify, address, remedy or mitigate all concerns and potential adverse
impacts  related  to  the town and CDA's goal of economic development at
the EPCAL site. The comprehensive and extensive  analysis  of  economic,
market,  environmental, traffic, sewer, water, and myriad other factors,
together with participation of state, regional, local departments, agen-
