A08339 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A8339
 
SPONSOR: Santabarbara
  TITLE OF BILL: An act authorizing the city of Schenectady to alienate certain parcels of land used as parkland and to acquire other parcels of land to replace such parkland   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To ensure the continued use and preservation of park space in the City of Schenectady, Schenectady County.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one provides for expansion of the city's park expansion in order to provide for the sale of Quackenbush Park for the construction of a new Boys and Girls Club building. The building will be situated between two underserved neighborhoods, Mont Pleasant and Hamilton Hill. This area is located near two public schools.   JUSTIFICATION: The city of Schenectady has requested this legislation. This bill would provide for the acquisition and dedication of additional lands by adding parkland from the expansion of Gateway Plaza. In exchange, the City of Schenectady would sell Quackenbush Park to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Schenectady at fair market value for the purposes of constructing a new Boys and Girls Club building. The building would house a teen center, technology center, DJ training and radio station booth, shared access to a commercial kitchen, gymnasium and theater. In addition, the new facility would offer a safe and educational setting for children ages 12 and under. The commercial kitchen will be used daily to feed dinner and snacks to the youths that the Clubs serve. In 2015, over 96,000 meals were served from the existing site. The bordering schools will partner with the Boys and Girls Clubs utilizing program space as well as shared strategies to help youths succeed.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
