Section 13.11 Real property abutting parks or parkways

Parks, recreation and historic preservation (PAR)

1. If the acquisition of real property for park, parkway, historic preservation or recreational purposes by the office or a state agency results in abutting premises being cut off from access to a public road, or if because of such acquisition it is desirable for public convenience to provide marginal or service roads near or adjacent to such acquired property, the office or state agency so acquiring is authorized to acquire such additional real property as may be necessary to provide such abutting premises with means of ingress and egress to a public road or to provide such marginal or service roads. The location of such additional real property and the nature and extent of the title to be acquired therein shall be such as in the discretion of the commissioner or state agency, as the case may be, as shall best serve the interest of the state.

  2. The office or state agency so acquiring is authorized to construct upon such real property, out of funds appropriated, a suitable access, service or marginal road, and is further authorized to enter into an agreement with the owner of the abutting premises as to his right of entry thereupon and with said owner or with any municipality as to the future maintenance thereof, and to transfer title and jurisdiction thereover to such municipality. Nothing herein contained shall be construed to repeal any specific limitation upon the powers and duties of the office or any state agency.
