An Act Relative to a Conservation Restriction in the Town of Truro.


              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.   The town of Truro, acting by and through its board of selectmen and conservation commission, may amend the conservation restriction granted to the town by MBO-JGO, LLC on a subdivision of land at 40 Great Hollow road in the town of Truro dated November 10, 2010  and registered with the Barnstable registry district of the Land court as document number 1,156,127 and recorded with the Barnstable county registry of deeds in book 25112, page 134. The conservation restriction provides for portions of each lot of land within the subdivision to be restricted and preserved in its natural state, and other portions to be used by the individual lot owners for the construction of single family homes.  The conservation restriction may be amended on Lot 2 at 40 Great Hollow road to provide for a residence to be constructed on an existing flat level area within the lot, rather than the steeply sloped portion of the lot originally designated for construction. The proposed amendment to the conservation restriction is shown on a plan of land entitled “Revised Limit of Permanent Alteration and Conservation Preservation Area for Lot 2” dated June 6, 2011 and prepared by Slade Associates, Inc. of Wellfleet, MA.

              SECTION 2.   In consideration of the conservation restriction amendment set forth in section 1, the owners of Lot 2 have proposed an alteration of the area preserved for conservation purposes on their lot from 28,077 square feet to 28,324 square feet, increasing the area under conservation restriction by approximately 247 square feet.

              SECTION 3.  This act shall take effect upon its passage.
