S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 3264 2011-2012 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E February 15, 2011 ___________ Introduced by Sens. STEWART-COUSINS, KRUEGER, PERALTA, STAVISKY -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Energy and Telecommunications AN ACT to amend the state technology law, in relation to developing a geographic information system to allow cities, towns and villages to calculate future development and its impacts THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature finds that the cities, towns and villages of the state are empowered through zoning and planning enabling authorization to manage land use in their respective jurisdictions. Land use decisions have significant local, regional and statewide fiscal, environmental and social significance. The legislature further finds that zoning and planning jurisdictions should have access to the most advanced technology, tools and data to foster intelligent decision making. The legislature further finds that technology through geographic information systems, digital orthophotos and other software tools exist to allow local officials and the public to visualize how their community has changed over the years and how it is likely to change in the future. Computer models can assist in developing growth policy for the whole community or for individual policy decisions. It is the intent of the legislature by this act to advance the state's current policies of using technology to help government to serve the people and of fostering quality communities through informed local plan- ning. S 2. Section 103 of the state technology law is amended by adding a new subdivision 12-c to read as follows: 12-C. TO DEVELOP, ACQUIRE OR CAUSE TO BE DEVELOPED, IN CONSULTATION WITH THE SECRETARY OF STATE, A GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM AND MAPPING METHODOLOGY THAT WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST TO ALL CITIES, EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
