BILL NUMBER:A455

TITLE OF BILL:

An act to amend the general municipal law, in relation to taking of
billboards

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

This bill would simplify current law regarding the removal of
billboards in areas other than industrial or manufacturing zones.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

The first section amends the general municipal law to extend the
eminent domain law to the removal of billboards in areas other than
industrial and manufacturing zones.  Furthermore, provisions relating
to amortization schedules for the removal of billboards in areas other
than industrial and manufacturing zones are removed.

Section two sets the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

The current scheme is far too complex to work effectively.
Furthermore, this simplified scheme would achieve results similar to
existing law and reduce costs to both the billboard industry and
municipalities.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2009-2010: A.2385
2011-2012: A.729
2013-2014: A.91
