An Act Relative to the Transfer of Land in the Town of Sharon.


 

              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 Sharon, acting by and through its conservation commission and the board of selectmen, may transfer a portion of the property located at 83 Belcher Street in the town of Sharon, acquired for conservation purposes, to the Massapoag Sportsmen’s Club of Sharon, Massachusetts for use as conservation land, including passive recreation.  The property that may be transferred contains approximately 17.19 acres, and was conveyed to the town as part of a larger parcel in 1998 by deed recorded in the Norfolk county registry of deeds at book 12212, page 104.  It is shown as Lot 2-B on a plan of land entitled “Subdivision Plan of Land, Sharon, Mass.” dated December 29, 2008 prepared by Sharon Survey Service and on file in the office of the town engineer, and is subject to a public access easement.  The deed of conveyance to the club shall contain a conservation restriction on the 17.19 acres.

 

SECTION 2.   In consideration for and as a condition of the conveyance of conservation land authorized in section 1, the Massapoag Sportsmen’s Club shall transfer 4 parcels of land located at 86 Belcher Street, totaling 35 acres, to the conservation commission of the town of Sharon to be held for conservation purposes. The parcels are shown as Lots 1-A, 3-A, 5 and 6 on the plan of land entitled “Subdivision Plan of Land, Sharon, Mass.” dated December 29, 2008 and prepared by Sharon Survey Service.  Said parcels are identified in a deed recorded at the Norfolk county registry of deeds in book 3520 at page 521 and are of equal or greater size and value than the property being transferred in section 1.

 

SECTION 3. As further consideration for and prior to the transfer described in section 2, the Massapoag Sportsmen’s Club shall place a conservation restriction on the 4 parcels, Lots 1-A,
3-A, 5 and 6 and said restriction shall be held by the Massachusetts Audubon Society in accordance with section 31 of chapter 184 of the General Laws.  

 

SECTION 4.   As additional further consideration, the Massapoag Sportsmen’s Club and the conservation commission of the town of Sharon shall agree to relocate the easement of the public access trail in Lot 2-B to another location within Club property for the benefit of the public and connect it to the existing trail within land owned by the town of Sharon.

 

SECTION 5.   This act shall take effect upon its passage.
