BILL NUMBER:A7002A

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 beginning. 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 Navigation 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 unregulated 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 legislation 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.
