              SECTION 2. The transfer authorized in section 1 shall be subject to the town of Barnstable’s contribution toward the subject property’s purchase price as agreed upon by the town of Barnstable and the town of Mashpee. 

              SECTION 3.              No document or instrument conveying any interest in the subject property described hereinabove shall be valid unless such document or instrument provides that said interest shall be held and maintained by the town of Barnstable solely for open space, conservation and passive recreation purposes, consistent with the provisions of section 8C of chapter 40 of the General Laws and Article 97 of the Amendments to the Constitution.

              SECTION 4.              Pursuant to the provisions of section 7 of chapter 44B of the General Laws, any sums paid to Mashpee by Barnstable in consideration of any interest transferred or conveyed pursuant hereto shall be deposited into the Mashpee Community Preservation Fund.
