A. 8821                             2

pike, when measured at right angles thereto; thence running southwester-
ly and ten (10) feet parallel with and northerly from the 12 inch  diam-
eter water main tank header pipe, when measured at right angles thereto,
about  one  hundred  seven  (107) linear feet to a point in the easterly
line of Lakeview Avenue; thence running northerly and along the easterly
line of Lakeview Avenue about two hundred fifty-eight (258) linear  feet
to  a  point  in  the  southerly line of Hempstead-Babylon Turnpike, the

  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
municipality of Freeport 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 muni-
cipality of Freeport which application must  be  made  within  one  year
after  the  effective  date of this act. As part of that application the

izations not affiliated with the municipality of Freeport or its parents

and will house the following organizations for their youth programs: the
Long  Island  Youth  Foundation,  Inc.  "Imani Dancers", the Delta Sigma
Theta Sorority, Inc., the Dr. Stanley  L.  Ralph  Creative  Arts  Center
Project.  The Quonset Hut will be used by the Freeport police department
and  the  Freeport  Armory  would  also  be   accessible   to   EOC   of
Freeport/Roosevelt.   Such report shall also contain a health and safety
assessment, including but not  limited  to,  possible  asbestos  contam-
ination  and abatement, air and soil and groundwater quality, the struc-
tural integrity of the buildings performed  by  a  certified  structural
engineer, and any health and safety improvements including such environ-
mental  remediation  as may be necessary. Such report shall also contain
an independent audit of the financial operations of the municipality  of
Freeport  for the past three years, and the record of three public hear-
ings documenting community 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 municipality of Freeport exclusively  for  voluntary  youth  associ-
ations,  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.
