S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 8859 I N S E N A T E April 25, 2022 ___________ Introduced by Sen. BROOKS -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Education AN ACT in relation to authorizing the state university of New York at Farmingdale to lease certain lands to the Farmingdale state develop- ment corporation THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature finds that the state university of New York at Farmingdale ("Farmingdale") seeks to use approximately 16 acres of underutilized land on Farmingdale's campus for the purpose of the creation of multiple lacrosse and multi-sport athlet- ic fields. One of the nation's leading youth sports tournament firms, has indicated a desire to develop these parcels at the firm's expense which would present an opportunity to generate significant revenue for Farmingdale and offers the unique prospect of rendering Farmingdale a desired destination for athletic tournaments, camps and clinics. The legislature further finds that the location and operation of this facility would provide opportunities for students enrolled in Farmingdale's Sports Management Program to participate in applied learn- ing and receive direct, hands-on access to myriad aspects of this indus- try. The legislature further finds that Farmingdale is ideally suited for such a successful venture, with proximity along the border of Nassau and Suffolk counties known as the Route 110 corridor; Farmingdale controls and maintains vacant land throughout the corridor and in several locations on its campus. This partnership opportunity will raise Farmingdale's campus profile, diversify its revenue stream and position Farmingdale as a prominent member of the Long Island economy. Moreover, this partnership opportunity fulfills a necessary and vital public purpose. Finally, the legislature finds that granting the trustees of the State University of New York the authority and power to lease and otherwise contract to make available grounds and facilities of the campus of the State University of New York at Farmingdale will ensure such activity EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
