[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Kings Point 3-27-2017 by L.L. No. 1-2017. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Parks — See Ch. 109.
The Village is seeking and has commenced a proceeding pursuant to the Eminent Domain Procedure Law to acquire certain properties for the purpose of establishing a passive waterfront park along Manhasset Bay for the benefit of all of the residents of the Village to increase the level and types of access to public water-related resources, for such activities as walking along the beachfront, bird watching, photography, and nature study, as a tranquil and quiet respite from the pressures of everyday life, and to be a haven for fowl and other wildlife for that watching, photography, and study.
In order to allow the residents of the Village to enjoy the park in the manner for which the park was established and to assure that the use of the park does not interfere with the neighboring residential properties, it is important to provide certain rules and regulations.
It is the intent of this chapter to establish those rules and regulations that will maximize the ability of the residents to utilize the park for the purposes for which it was created, without being disturbed by loud noise, litter, or other nuisances, and without disturbing the quietude of neighboring residents.
This chapter is being adopted prior to the vesting of title of the properties to be obtained by eminent domain so that the rules and regulations contained herein shall be in effect as of the date the Village is vested in title to those properties.
A park, which shall be known as "East Shore Park," is hereby established, consisting of the following parcels located in the Village of Kings Point as shown on the Nassau County Land and Tax Map: Section 1, Block 172, Lots 35, 36A, 36B, 37A, 37B, 39C, 39D, 40A, 40B, 41A, 41B, 42A, 42B, 43A, and 43B; and Section 1, Block 184, Lots 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A, 3B, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11A, 11B, 12A, 12B, 13, and 14.
