NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A7002A
 
SPONSOR: Thiele
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to grant authority to the village of Sag Harbor, county of Suffolk to regulate certain described waters bounding said village pursuant to the navigation law   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To grant the Village of Sag Harbor jurisdiction in regulating beaches, establishing a vessel regulation zones, and regulating vessels in described waters which may be more than 1500 feet from shore.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1. Grants the Village of Sag Harbor, county of Suffolk the jurisdiction to (a) to regulate beaches pursuant to Section 45-b of the state navigation law, (b) establish a vessel regulation zone pursuant to section 46 of the state navigation law, and (c) regulate vessels pursuant to section 46-a of the state navigation law, in the waters within or bounding the village described as follows: Beginning at the following point, 41 degrees, 0.554 minutes, North, and 72 degrees, 17.663 minutes, West, the point, thence in a straight line generally easterly to a point, 41 degrees, 0.649 minutes, North and 72 degrees, 15.934 minutes West, thence along the shoreline to the breakwater, and thence along the breakwater to the place of begin- ning. The village shall possess such jurisdiction, notwithstanding that a part of such waters maybe more than fifteen hundred feet from shore. Section 2. Severability Clause Section 3. Effective Date   JUSTIFICATION: The Village of Sag Harbor's historic popularity as a sailing and boating destination continues to grow every year. There has been an exponential increase in the number and variety of transient vessels occupying the waters surrounding the Village which has led to a greater demand for anchoring and mooring locations. Under current Navi- gation Law, beaches, vessels and vessel regulation zones may only be regulated by a municipality up to a distance of 1500 feet from the shoreline. The particular area described in this legislation is very popular for temporary and seasonal anchoring; however it is an unregu- lated mooring location because it lies more than 1500 feet from shore. Boats, therefore, are haphazardly moored vessels, posing a safety hazard to fellow boaters, swimmers, and other watercraft users. This legis- lation is necessary to grant jurisdiction of the described area to Village of Sag Harbor so that a well-organized and regulated mooring field may be created to ensure the future safety and enjoyment of Sag Harbor's waters.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Legislation, 2015   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
