[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Marion as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Adopted 4-6-1995 by L.L. No. 1-1995]
The Town of Marion recognizes that it is in the interests of its inhabitants and in furtherance of the general health and welfare that adequate parks suitably located for playgrounds and other recreational purposes be set aside, expanded, and improved. The creation of additional residential living units in the Town creates additional demand for and upon the existing park areas of the Town, and counsels for municipal planning for the maintenance and development of parks areas in the most economical and efficient manner practicable. Given the particular and unique needs of the Town of Marion, the Town elects to exercise its supersession authority conferred under the Municipal Home Rule Law to change the operative effects of §§ 274-a and 277 of the Town Law of the State of New York to require monies to be paid upon residential site or subdivision approval for park, playground, or other recreational uses.
As used in this article, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
- SITE PLAN
- A rendering, drawing, or sketch prepared to specifications and containing necessary elements, as set forth in Chapter 308, Zoning, or Chapter 245, Subdivision of Land, of the Code of the Town of Marion, which shows the arrangement, layout, and design of the proposed use of a single parcel of land as shown on said plan.
Notwithstanding contrary provisions set forth in §§ 274-a and 277 of the Town Law, upon the approval of any site or subdivision plan by any board or officer of the Town of Marion having authority and jurisdiction to do so, the applicant shall pay a sum of money, in an amount to be established by the Town Board, for each residential unit thereby approved, said sums to be deposited into a trust fund to be used by the Town of Marion exclusively for park, playground, or other recreational purposes, including the acquisition of property.
