BILL NUMBER:A6429A

TITLE OF BILL:  An act authorizing the town of Southampton, Suffolk
county, to establish road improvement districts within substandard
road zones designated by the town pursuant to the general municipal
law

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

To authorize the Southampton Town Board to establish road improvement
districts within substandard road zones designated by the town
pursuant to the General Municipal Law.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1. An act to permit the Town of Southampton to establish a
special road improvement district or districts pursuant to Article 12
and 12-A of the town law.

Section 2. The purpose of a road improvement district in the town of
Southampton shall be to permit the town to improve private substandard
roads located within substandard road zones designated by the
Southampton Town Board, pursuant to Article 15 of the General
Municipal Law, in order to meet the standard for dedication and
acceptance into the town highway system, Such improvements,
construction, or reconstruction shall be subject to and in accordance
with the applicable provisions of the highway law with procedures
established by the New York State Department of Transportation. Once
improvements are completed, said road shall be dedicated and accepted
into the town highway system.

Section 3. Provides that any road improved pursuant to this act which
is dedicated and accepted into the town highway system shall
thereafter be maintained as a public highway. Such maintenance shall
become a general town charge and no longer a charge of the road
improvement district. Once all private substandard roads located with
in such district have been dedicated and accepted into the town
highway system, the district shall be deemed dissolved and
discontinued.

Section 4. Provides for an immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

There is approximately 117 miles of unimproved roadways in the Town of
Southampton. Passage on many unimproved roads is becoming a more and
more difficult by residents because they are in dire need of
significant repair. With the increased frequency and intensity of
coastal storms hitting the area, potential safety concerns have also
arisen because the hazardous conditions of unimproved roads could
severely hinder a resident's access to help during an emergency
situation. As such, the Southampton Town Board has been in discussions
with members of an advisory committee formed by concerned residents on
finding a way to make it easier and less expensive to maintain areas
of troublesome unimproved roads.


This legislation would offer a solution to allow the Town of
Southampton to address the concerns of affected residents by
authorizing the Southampton Town Board to establish road improvement
districts within substandard road zones designated by the town
pursuant to the General Municipal Law.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2013: New Legislation

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
