The 191st General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE TOWN OF WILBRAHAM TO EXCHANGE A CERTAIN PARCEL OF LAND HELD FOR CONSERVATION PURPOSES.

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to provide forthwith for the department of capital asset management and maintenance to release a certain easement in the cities of Malden and Revere, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same as follows:

SECTION 1. (a) Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary but subject to paragraphs (a), (b) and (g) of section 16 of chapter 30B of the General Laws, the town of Wilbraham may transfer from the conservation commission to the board of selectmen for the purpose of conveyance, the care, custody, management and control of a portion of a parcel of land located at 9V Cedar Oak drive in the town of Wilbraham. The parcel was acquired by the town for conservation purposes by a deed recorded in the Hampden registry of deeds in book 3435, page 61. The portion to be conveyed is shown as “Parcel A” on a plan entitled “Plan of Property 6 Decorie Drive & 9V Cedar Oak Drive, Wilbraham, MA” prepared for Tanya M. Vital Basile & Anabela S. Basile, 6 Decorie Drive, Wilbraham, MA and the Wilbraham conservation commission, 9V Cedar Oak Drive, Wilbraham, MA. Consideration for the conveyance shall be $16,000 and such sum shall be used by the town for the purchase and care of conservation land in the town, including land located at 6 Decorie drive, shown as parcel identification number 1437 on the town of Wilbraham assessor’s map which was acquired by Tanya M. Vital Basile and Anabela S. Basile by a deed recorded in the Hampden registry of deeds in book 20099, page 219, which portion is shown as “Parcel B” on the aforementioned plan. The parcel acquired by the town shall be held by the town for conservation purposes under Article 97 of the Amendments to the Constitution and upon such other terms and conditions as the board of selectmen shall deem appropriate.
