A08059 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A8059C
 
SPONSOR: Jenne
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the village of Massena, in the town of Massena in the county of St. Lawrence, to alienate certain parklands and to dedicate other lands as parklands   PURPOSE: To create efficiencies for the village of Massena Department of Public Works and reduce the impact of DPW activities on residents.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Sections one through six give the village of Massena the ability to alienate certain parklands while dedicating other lands as parklands. Section seven is the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: The village of Massena has operated the Department of Public Works located at 536 South Main Street since the mid-1960's. The original building had many structural issues and required major attention. On October 1, 1998, the village obtained the Army Reserve Facility from the Federal Government which is not used for the DPW. Because of the acqui- sition of the Army Reserve Building, the former DMP facility was deemed unusable and was eventually demolished. The location of that facility is separated from most of the community by railroad tracks. Over the years those railroad tracks have caused much delay and expense due to the inefficiencies created by waiting for trains to cross. In 2000 the village engaged in a joint effort with the Massena Central School District to develop a facility to house and repair school buses and DPW equipment. After the cooperation between the village and the school district, there was not enough property to accommodate all village functions such as salt storage, bulk material storage, and organic disposal. Those functions remained at the original location, requiring the village to continue to deal with the inefficiencies created by being located near the railroad tracks. In 2016 the village had an opportunity to liquidate the former DPW site on South Main Street to a developer. The proposed development of this property will generate more than 30 full time jobs. Therefore, in the planning of this transaction, the village needed to relocate its storage of bulk materials. Knowing this, the village purchased approximately 36-acres of privately owned land which connects to the new DPW site. Unfortunately, this property is also located in the backyards of resi- dential homeowners. Between the new combination DPW and school facility and the 36-acre property just recently purchased there is a softball field on property that is currently designated as a greenbelt preserva- tion district. This legislation would exchange the new 36-acre property for the proper- ty currently containing the softball field. The transfer would add approximately 15 percent more area to the existing greenbelt, would allow the village to utilize the adjacent property without adversely impacting residents, and would save an estimated 800 man hours per year by removing the impediment of waiting on rail cars to pass.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.

    39  market value of the parklands to be alienated as  described  in  section
    40  three  of this act, the village of Massena shall dedicate the difference
    41  of the fair market value of the lands to be alienated and the  lands  to

    47  of  this act, the discontinuance and alienation of such parkland author-
    48  ized by the provisions of this act shall not occur until the village  of
    49  Massena  has  complied  with  any federal requirements pertaining to the
    50  alienation or conversion of parklands, including satisfying  the  secre-
    51  tary of the interior that the alienation or conversion complies with all
    52  conditions which the secretary of the interior deems necessary to assure
    53  the substitution of other lands shall be equivalent in fair market value
    54  and usefulness to the lands being alienated or converted.
    55    § 7. This act shall take effect immediately.
