[Adopted 11-18-2003 by L.L. No. 1-2003]
Pursuant to the provisions of § 7-730, Subdivision 4, of the Village Law of the State of New York, where the proposed subdivision plat presents a proper case for requiring a park or parks suitably located for playgrounds or other recreational purposes, but where a suitable park or parks of adequate size to meet the requirement cannot be properly located on such subdivision plat, the Planning Board may require a sum of money in lieu thereof, in an amount to be established by the Board of Trustees and which sum takes into consideration the recommendations of the Planning Board.
Such sum shall be paid to the Village and held by it as a trust fund, to be used by it for park, playground or recreation purposes, including acquisition of land, for the sole use of inhabitants of the Village of Nissequogue.
In addition, as determined by the Board of Trustees, such trust funds may be used by the Village for improvement of property owned by the Village, including but not limited to Village Hall, the police station and firehouse.
