AN  ACT  to  amend the Hudson river park act, in relation to the rights,
  powers, duties and jurisdiction of the Hudson river park trust and the
  boundaries and uses of the Hudson river park


  Section  1.  Legislative  findings  and intent. The legislature hereby
finds, determines and declares the following:
  The planning, development and operation of the Hudson River Park as  a
public  park  continue  to  be  a  matter of importance to the state. As
detailed in the 1998 law creating the park and the trust, chapter 592 of
the laws of 1998, the creation, development, operation  and  maintenance
of  the Hudson River Park will enhance and protect the natural, cultural
and historic aspects of the Hudson River,  enhance  and  afford  quality
public  access  to  the river, allow for an array of cultural and recre-
ational programs and provide a host of other public benefits. The limit-
ed changes and additional rights provided by the amendment of  the  1998
law  by  this  act are intended to be consistent with the park's general
project plan as defined in chapter  592  of  the  laws  of  1998,  which
continues  to  be  the operative planning document guiding park develop-
ment, protection and reuse of a portion of the Hudson  River  waterfront
in  lower Manhattan south of 59th street, and are intended to ensure the
realization of that vision and the park's continuing viability for years
to come. Nothing herein is intended  to  alter  or  override  any  prior
determinations concerning park planning, development or operation.
  S  2.  Section  3 of chapter 592 of the laws of 1998, constituting the
Hudson river park act, is amended to read as follows:
  S 3. Definitions.  As used in this act, the following terms shall have
the following meanings, unless the context clearly requires otherwise:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
