in the Nassau County Clerk's Office on June 20, 1949  in  Book  3857  of
Deeds at page 384.
  S  3.  The  description  in  section two of this act of the land to be
conveyed is not intended to be a legal description but  is  intended  to
identify  the parcel to be conveyed. As a condition of the purchase, the
Cedarmore  Corporation  may  submit  to  the  commissioner  of   general
services, for his or her approval, an accurate survey and description of
the lands to be conveyed, which may be used in the conveyance thereof.
  S  4.  The office of general services shall not transfer or convey the
aforesaid land unless application in a form acceptable to the office  of
general services is made to the office of general services by the Cedar-
more  Corporation  which  application must be made within one year after
the effective date of this act. As part of that application  the  Cedar-
more  Corporation must submit to the office of general services a report
containing a master plan setting forth a proposed use and  occupancy  of
such  land  pursuant  to an advertised public hearing that conforms with
the public purpose set forth in section  five  of  this  act,  including
letters of commitment from not less than six community organizations not
affiliated  with  the  Cedarmore  Corporation or its parents and subsid-
iaries. Such report shall also contain a health and  safety  assessment,
including but not limited to, possible asbestos contamination and abate-
ment,  air and soil and groundwater quality, the structural integrity of
the buildings performed by a  certified  structural  engineer,  and  any
health  and safety improvements including such environmental remediation
as may be necessary. Such report shall also contain an independent audit
of the financial operations of the Cedarmore Corporation  for  the  past
three  years, and the record of three public hearings documenting commu-
nity response if such public purpose includes the placement of a charter
school.
  S 5. The land described in section two of this act shall  be  used  by
the  Cedarmore Corporation exclusively for voluntary youth associations,
educational and recreational  programs  to  assist  at-risk  youth,  and
public  safety  purposes  and  upon termination of such use title to the
lands so transferred along with  any  improvements  made  thereto  shall
revert to the state of New York.
  S 6. This act shall take effect immediately.
