AN ACT to authorize the town  of  Orangetown,  county  of  Rockland,  to
  discontinue  use  of  certain lands as park lands and sell such lands,
  and dedicate certain other lands as park lands

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Subject to the provisions of this act, the town of Orange-
town, county of Rockland, is hereby authorized, acting  by  and  through
its  town board and upon such terms and conditions as determined by such
board, to discontinue the use of the municipally owned park land common-
ly known as Broadacres Golf Course, and more particularly  described  in
section  three of this act, which is no longer needed for park purposes,
and sell and convey in fee simple for its fair  market  value  and  upon
such  terms  and conditions as it deems appropriate such lands which are
no longer useful for park and  recreation  purposes.  The  authorization
contained  in this section shall only be effective on the condition that
State of New York waives any reversion clause of any deed conveying such
property, if applicable.
  S 2. The authorization contained in section one of this act shall take
effect only upon the condition that the town of Orangetown  shall  dedi-
cate lands from the lands described in section four of this act as addi-
tional  park lands of the town, provided that the town of Orangetown has
never used such lands for public open space or park  purposes,  are  not
lands  under  water,  are improved such that the lands with improvements
are of equal or greater fair market value than the  value  of  the  park
lands  being  alienated  by  this act, are at least thirty acres of land
that include all land adjacent to a  body  of  water  within  the  lands
described  in  section  four  of this act known as Lake Tappan, and that
such lands form one contiguous park. Such  improvements  shall  include,
but  not  be  limited  to, a walking and/or bike path, and public access

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