Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

 

This proposed rule will establish user fees for the Parks Department’s new Ocean Breeze Track & Field Athletic Complex at Ocean Breeze Park in Staten Island. The 135,000 square-foot indoor track and field facility features an eight-lane hydraulically banked track, enclosed track and field practice areas, and seating for 2,500 spectators. The two-story facility includes a ground-level warm-up track, fitness rooms, locker rooms and a 160-space parking garage. The Ocean Breeze Track & Field Athletic Complex will host all levels of track and field competitions. The Ocean Breeze Track & Field Athletic Complex will also provide indoor practice space for competitive runners and other track & field athletes, and other recreational programming for patrons of all ages and skill levels.  

The proposed rule will:

  • Establish session fees for the exclusive use of the Ocean Breeze Track & Field Athletic Complex for track and field events during the indoor track season.     
  • Establish membership fees for children, young adults, adults and senior citizens. Members will have access to the track and field area, fitness rooms and recreational programming during scheduled times when the complex is not being exclusively used for athletic events and when there are no track and field practice times.
  • Establish practice fees for the use of the complex’s second-floor track and field area at practice times during the indoor track season. The use of the track and field areas during these times will be restricted to members and non-members who pay the practice fees.

The Parks Department’s authority for these rules is found in section 533 of the New York City Charter.

Statement of Basis and Purpose

 

The purpose of this rule is to:

 

  • Enhance recreational opportunities for individuals between the ages of 18 and 24 years at the Department’s recreation centers, and address public health and transitional needs of these individuals, by creating a $25 membership fee category for this age group.

 

  • Reflect the Department’s effort to complement New York City’s Young Men’s Initiative and other key programs.

 

  • Allow patrons and former patrons who once held Senior Citizen Memberships a second opportunity to be grandfathered into that membership category. The Department on July 1, 2011 increased the minimum age for Senior Citizen Membership from 55 to 62 years, but allowed patrons between the ages of 55 and 61 years to renew at the Senior Citizen rate, provided such renewals took place prior to expiration of their memberships. Some patrons, however, were unaware of this option and either allowed their memberships to expire or purchased a new membership at the Adult rate. These patrons and former patrons will again be allowed to purchase Senior Citizen Memberships, if they do so by December 31, 2013 (in the case of those who allowed their memberships to expire) or upon expiration of their current membership (in the case of those who, after July 1, 2011, purchased Adult Memberships).

 

  • Clarify the age ranges for each membership fee category.
