AN ACT to amend the town law, in relation to authorizing  certain  towns

  funds, provided that such towns adopt a housing plan adhering to smart
  growth principles in conjunction with the creation of  such  community

  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.
