BILL NUMBER:S5298

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the county of Suffolk to
discontinue the use of certain county lands as parkland and to sell
and convey such lands to the First Baptist Church of Bay Shore

PURPOSE:

Authorizes Suffolk County to discontinue use as parkland and sell and
convey a parcel of land to the First Baptist Church of Bay Shore.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill authorizes Suffolk County, through its
Legislature, to discontinue as parkland, sell and convey a specific
parcel of land to the First Baptist Church of Bay Shore.

Section 2 provides that the authorization granted in § 1 is contingent
on Suffolk County acquiring additional land of equal or greater value
than that being alienated or making capital improvements to existing
facilities.

Section 3 provides the meets and bounds description of the property.

Section 4 requires Suffolk County to comply with any federal
requirements pertaining to the alienation of parkland.

Section 5 states that in the event that the park lands to be dedicated
by the county are not of equal or greater fair market value and
usefulness as park lands than the park lands to be discontinued, the
county shall dedicate the difference of fair market value and/or
usefulness of the lands to be alienated and the lands to be dedicated
for the acquisition of additional park lands and/or capital
improvements to existing park and recreational activities.

Section 6 states the effective date

JUSTIFICATION:

The First Baptist Church of Bay Shore is seeking to acquire a parcel
of land adjacent to their existing property in order to construct a
new community center. The parcel in question was obtained by Suffolk
County through a tax foreclosure proceeding and subsequently
transferred to the Suffolk County Department of Parks, Recreation and
Conservation, at which point it became considered dedicated parkland
even though it was not used as such. This legislation is necessary to
authorize Suffolk County to discontinue use of this parcel as parkland
and enable it to be sold to the First Baptist Church of Bay Shore.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

S.4416B - died in Local Government Committee

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
