AN ACT to amend the New York state urban development corporation act, in
  relation to establishing an urban and community development program


  Section 1. Statement of legislative findings and purpose.  The  legis-
lature  finds  that  the  recent  shift  in  emphasis toward state/local
economic development partnerships and  state  support  of  regional  and
local  economic  development activities requires a clear articulation of
strategic objectives, a delineation of respective state/local roles, and
a responsive state mechanism for delivering assistance and services.
  The legislature further finds that New York state has a broad  network
of  community-based,  not-for-profit  economic development organizations
with a knowledge of community conditions, needs, strengths  and  priori-
ties  and  which  possess  an  on-the-scenes knowledge of local business
conditions and experience in providing  technical  assistance  to  small
businesses, managing business retention programs, and providing a varie-
ty of other services.
  The  legislature  further  finds  and  declares that the core areas of
communities throughout the state, composed of central business districts
or commercial strips and their adjacent, surrounding areas, are  suffer-
ing  from  deterioration  and  decline that have negatively affected the
abilities of these communities, as a whole, to retain and  attract  both
residents and jobs.
  The legislature further finds that the revitalization of central busi-
ness  districts  and  commercial strips can result in increased property
values, an expanded tax base, the development of new businesses, and  an
enhanced  ability  to attract and retain industry, tourism and residents
