SECTION 50
Statewide transportation planning
Transportation (TRA) CHAPTER 61-A, ARTICLE 2-D
§ 50. Statewide transportation planning. Project coordination with
statewide transportation plan. Upon review of a proposed municipal
project submitted to the commissioner under section forty-nine herein,
the commissioner may transmit, within a reasonably prompt time, advisory
comments to the Utica transit authority with regard to such project's
being a part of or consistent with a statewide comprehensive master plan
for transportation promulgated by him and approved by the governor upon
the recommendation of the department of state or, in the absence of any
such statewide plan, any other recognized long-range regional
transportation plan approved by the commissioner or, in the absence of
any such regional plan, sound transportation development policy and
planning concept. If the commissioner finds such a project to be in
conflict with such statewide plan, regional plan or transportation
development policy and planning concept, the Utica transit authority
shall before undertaking such project, upon the request of the
commissioner, state in writing to the commissioner its reasons for
undertaking the project notwithstanding such conflict. In no event,
however, shall the Utica transit authority submit to the United States
or to the State of New York, or any agency or instrumentality of them,
an application for a federal or state project unless the application
shall have been first approved by the commissioner as being part of or
consistent with such statewide plan, regional plan or transportation
development policy and planning concept.
