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.
