       Introduced  by COMMITTEE ON RULES -- (at request of M. of A. Brennan) --
         read once and referred to the Committee on Judiciary
       AN ACT in relation to directing the  president  of  the  New  York  city
         economic  development corporation to acquire the premises known as 589
         Prospect Avenue in the borough of Brooklyn and providing  for  compen-
         sation therefor
         THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
       BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
    1    Section 1. Legislative findings and  intent.  The  legislature  hereby
    2  finds,  determines and declares that it is a matter of state concern and
    3  in the interest of the people of the state to protect and provide a full
    4  service supermarket in the Windsor Terrace section  of  the  borough  of
    5  Brooklyn.  The  loss  of  the only such supermarket in the community has
    6  severely impacted the lives of many senior citizens and  others  in  the
    7  community  without  cars  who  have  no place they can walk to buy fresh
    8  produce, meats and other staples. Therefore, the legislature  finds  and
    9  declares  that the proposed conversion of the property designated as lot
   10  43 in tax block 1116, also known as 589 Prospect Avenue, in the  borough
   11  of  Brooklyn,  for use other than a full service supermarket would seri-
   12  ously impact the health of these residents due to the limitation on what
   13  food would be available to them without diverting part of their  grocery
   14  money for transportation to other communities.
   15    S  2.  The president of New York city economic development corporation
   16  shall acquire, by purchase or  condemnation,  from  the  current  owner,
   17  pursuant  to the eminent domain procedure law, the premises known as 589
   18  Prospect Avenue. Furthermore, the president is hereby directed to  issue
   19  a request for proposals for a full-service supermarket to be operated at
   20  this  site  through a long-term lease between the operator of the super-
   21  market and New York city economic development corporation.   Proceedings
   22  for  such  acquisition  shall commence immediately upon the enactment of
   23  this article.
   24    S 3. Just compensation for such purchase or condemnation shall be paid
   25  to the current owner of the property in a  manner  consistent  with  the
   26  eminent domain procedure law and other applicable laws.
   27    S 4. This act shall take effect immediately.
        EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                             [ ] is old law to be omitted.
