AN ACT to dedicate and designate Jerome Park as parkland of the city  of
  New  York,  and  to establish a working group for such park to enhance
  use thereof

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

  Section  1.  Legislative  intent.  The  legislature  hereby finds that
Jerome Park, located around the Jerome Park reservoir, that  is  located
in  the  borough of the Bronx in the city of New York, has been used for
numerous outdoor recreational and open space purposes for over a  centu-
ry.  Furthermore,  such park has the potential to incorporate additional
urban wildlife sanctuary, outdoor recreational and open space  uses  for
the  betterment  of  the local community. Through the auspices of master
plans authorized and approved by the parks and recreation department  of
the  city  of  New  York and work by community groups such as the Jerome
Park Conservancy and the Friends of Jerome Park, it is  a  sound  public
policy and community benefit to advance the increased use of Jerome Park
for additional outdoor recreational and open space uses and to integrate
such  park functions with the adjacently located Fort Independence Park.
Going forward, key elements of the future design of the park should help
to preserve its historic essence, reveal its potential as public  space,
and  link  places and events with the park to the surrounding community.
Finally, such future development of Jerome Park should frame the  beauty
of the reservoir with a new layer of landscape and purpose.
  S  2.  To achieve the legislative intent articulated in section one of
this act, all lands that are contained in the  Jerome  Park,  which  are
located  in or adjacent to block 3246, section 12 of the land map of the
borough of the Bronx, city of New York, excluding those lands  that  are
the  reservoir itself and lands bordering such reservoir shore line that
