LAVALLE -- read twice and ordered print- ed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Local Govern- ment IN ASSEMBLY -- Introduced by M. of A. THIELE -- read once and referred to the Committee on Local Governments AN ACT to amend the town law, in relation to authorizing certain towns in the Peconic Bay region to establish community housing opportunity funds, provided that such towns adopt a housing plan adhering to smart growth principles in conjunction with the creation of such community housing opportunity fund 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 chapter 114 of the laws of 1998 enacted provisions of law relating to Peconic Bay region community preservation funds. Such chapter permitted the five towns of the Peconic Bay region to establish a dedicated fund for the acquisition of interests in real property for the purposes of open space, farmland, and historic preservation, as well as park and recreation purposes. The revenue for such fund was derived from a two percent real estate transfer tax. Community preservation funds in each of the five Peconic Bay region towns were approved overwhelmingly by public referendum. The enactment of this land preservation has been an incredible success. The funds have generated over one hundred million dollars as of July 2002, resulting in thousands of acres of land being protected on eastern Long Island. The program has received national recognition for its innovative and creative approach to community preservation. Just as critical to the future of the Peconic Bay region is the human need to protect community stability by providing for an adequate supply EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
