Proposed Local Law #2 of Town of Caroline

1. Background

The Town of Caroline by Local Law No. 2 of the year 1996 adopted procedures to classify certain town highways as minimum maintenance roads.  The effect of such a designation is more particularly set forth in Section 10 of such local law.

2. Existing Designation of Downey Road

By Local Law No. 3 of the year 1996, the Town designated a section of Downey Road commencing a point 2585 feet from South Road and ending at its terminus of Chestnut Road as a minimum maintenance road.

3. Findings with Respect to Minimum Maintenance Designation of a Portion of Downey Road

The Town Clerk has received a petition to discontinue the minimum maintenance designation of that portion of Downey Road that begins at a point 2585 feet from South Road and ends a point 2735 feet from South Rd.  The remaining portion of Downey Road is not affected by this local law.  The Town Board makes the following findings:

(a)     Such petition is by a person contemplating ownership and occupancy of real property abutting a portion of Downey Road designated as a minimum maintenance highway, which is currently owned by his mother.

(b)    Such petition identifies that portion of such road to be discontinued as a minimum maintenance highway.

(c)    At least ten (10) days public notice was given prior to holding the public hearing on the adoption of this local law.

(d)   At least ten (10) days written notice of such public hearing was served by certified mail upon every owner of real property, as determined by the latest assessment roll, abutting such portion of Downey Road as is proposed to be discontinued as a minimum maintenance highway.

(e)    The discontinuance of such portion of Downey Road as a minimum maintenance highway is necessary to allow year round access for a new home at approximately 320 Downey Road within the portion of the road that would be classified as other than a minimum maintenance highway.

4. Discontinuance of Minimum Designation of a Portion of Downey Road

(a)     That portion of Downey Road that begins at a point 2585 feet from South Road and ends a point 2735 feet from South Rd is hereby discontinued as a minimum maintenance highway

(b)   Such discontinuance shall be effective August 1, 2015.

5. Effective Date

This local law shall take effect upon filing by the Secretary of State but such filing shall not affect the effective date of discontinuance as provided by Section 4 above.
