land adjoining the road or street inshore of such land underwater in the
manner herein provided, but grant lease so made shall not be
regarded as depriving any other person of the exercise of his or her
riparian rights.

Where the title to such public road or street is in a county, city,
town or village, grants or leases may be made by the commissioner'in the
manner herein provided to the owner of the land adjoining the road or
street inshore of such land underwater, but no such grant shall be made
unless the consent thereto of such county, city, town or village shall
first be filed with the commissioner, or unless, having been duly per-
sonally served with a notice of application of such grant, the county,
city, town or village fails to file ta remonstrance] an

objection with the commissioner or, having filed such [remonstrance] objection, fails to present to the commissioner sufficient proof or other reasons satisfactory, to the commissioner why the grant should not be made.

and occupancy of those state-owned lands underwater to be affected
by such act or acts, provided however, that there shall be excepted in
the uniform regulations issued pursuant to paragraph (f) of this subdi-
vision any existing structure for non-commercial use constructed prior
to June seventeenth, nineteen hundred ninety-two, by or on behalf of the
owner of adjacent upland who owned prior to June seventeenth, nineteen
hundred ninety-two, which has a surface area, as measured at the outer-
most perimeter, including surface waters between or encompassed within
the structure of less than five thousand square feet in area, and with
respect to docking facilities, has a capacity of

than
boats thirty feet in length. For the purposes of this subdivision, the
term "structure" shall not include discharge or intake pipes, pipelines,
cables, or conduits. Thereafter there shall be so excepted any structure
constructed by or on behalf of the owner of adjacent uplands that:

(i) has a surface area, as measured at the outermost perimeter, in-
cluding surface waters directly between or encompassed within the struc-
ture, of less than four thousand square feet in area and not exceeding
fifteen feet in height, as measured at the uppermost point, above, the
mean high water line and, with respect to docking facilities, has a
capacity of five or fewer boats thirty feet in length and, with respect
to mooring facilities, has a capacity of fewer than ten boats thirty
feet in length; provided that the commissioner may by rule promulgated
pursuant

to paragraph (f) of this subdivision determine,based on a
different surface area or other criteria of size and use, that other
types of structure in particular circumstances do not represent signifi-
cant encroachments on state-owned lands underwater, and

(ii) is water dependent, which shall mean, for purposes of this sec-
tion, an activity, which can only be conducted on, in, over adjacent
to water body, because such activity requires direct access to that
water body, and which involves, as an integral part of such activity,
the use of the water.

(c) The requirements of obtaining a lease, easement, permit or other
interest from the commissioner pursuant to the rules set forth in para-
graph (f) of

this subdivision shall not apply to the person or entity
who was the upland owner on June seventeenth, nineteen hundred ninety-
two, of lands adjacent to filled state-owned lands underwater or for-
merly underwater, in respect of those filled lands, including accompa-
nying seawalls; provided however, that any right, title and interest of
the state in and to any such state-owned lands shall in
dininished impaired by the provisions of this section, nor by any
exemption in the uniform regulations authorized by paragraph (f) of this
subdivision.

Upon any transfer of such lands, or at the request of the owner of the
adjacent upland, the commissioner may convey such lesser interest as may
be minimally required to allow a conveyance of marketable title by that
owner of the adjacent land. Considerat'ion charged in such instances
shall reflect the interest so conveyed.

(d) (i) The commissioner of environmental conservation and the secre-
tary of state shall review any proposed lease, easement,

permit or other
interest, except for facilities in existence June seventeenth,
nineteen' hundred ninety-two, and which are not the subject of an action

by the attorney general for unlawful occupation of state lands under water on the effective date of this paragraph. The commissioner of environmental conservation shall recommend conditions to protect the environment and natural resources. The commissioner of general services shall incorporate those conditions in any lease, easement, permit or other interest, giving due regard as well to the recommendations of the secretary of state with respect to coastal issues, or shall deny, the proposal if the commissioner of environmental conservation, upon administrative findings, determines that the environment or natural resources cannot be adequately protected. Such lease, easement, permit, other conveyance of an interest shall state the purpose for which it is made, and shall also be subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules, regulations and codes.

(ii) The owner,, occupier or any other person or entity (except those against whom there has been commenced on the effective date of this paragraph an action by the attorney general, for unlawful occupation of state l'ands under water) with a legal beneficial interest in any structure not excepted by paragraph (b) of this subdivision and occupying state lands underwater the effective date of the rules authorized by, paragraph (f) of this subdivision, as adopted pursuant to subdivision five of section two hundred two of the state administrative procedure act, shall make application for such lease, easement, permit or other interest within one year from that effective date.

Except where timely application for such an interest has been made within one year

pursuant to

this

subdivision, the commissioner is authorized to require the term of such lease, easement, permit, or other interest to be retroactive to the effective date of the rules adopted. Any instrument conveying an interest in real property which is made retroactive shall include provision for payment of consideration for the portion of the term which extends retroactively including, where appropriate, interest on such consideration at the same rate then currently in effect and applied to judgments rendered in the court of claims.

(iii) The commissioner shall make reasonable efforts to provide notice to persons affected by the requirements of this section.

(e)(1) The commissioner may impose a fee in connection with the issuance of any such lease, easement, permit, or other interest, which fee shall be established by rule pursuant to paragraph (f) of this subdivision, and which shall take into account other factors affecting value including but not limited to classes of structure, types

of use (including whether the use is for public or private purposes), location and region, size, usefulness of the parcel standing alone and such other criteria as the commissioner may determine, but which shall exclude the value of improvements thereon constructed and maintained by the adjoining upland owner. The rules and regulations required by paragraph (f) of this subdivision shall prescribe that in the event an applicant for a lease, easement or other interest in real property shall dispute and request a reduction of the commissioner's determination of the value of the interest to be conveyed, the commissioner shall, upon

the applicant's submission of an appraisal of the value of such property interest conducted in accord with standard and accepted appraisal methodology by

independent appraiser qualified as prescribed in this paragraph and which appraisal varies in its conclusion as to value by ten percent or

of the value previously established by the commissioner, and upon the applicant's agreement to be bound thereby, contract with second independent appraiser, qualified prescribed in this paragraph, to render an appraisal of the value of the interest proposed to be conveyed, the results of which appraisal shall be binding upon both the applicant and the commissioner of general services. Such appraiser shall be selected by the commissioner of general services from among a group of at least three appraisers identified by the applicant all of whom must

be qualified as prescribed in this paragraph and each of whom must agree to employ standard appraisal methodology. For the purposes of this provision a qualified appraiser shall be certified by the secretary of state to transact business as a real estate general appraiser and shall conduct

a regular business of the appraisal of real property interests. In the event that the appraisal contracted for in such manner shall conclude that the value of the property interest in question is equal to the value previously determined by the commissioner plus or minus ten EXPLANATION-Matter in italics is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law
