  • Chapter 46 AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE CITY OF FITCHBURG TO CONVEY CERTAIN PARK LAND TO THE COMMONWEALTH AND RATIFYING THE SALE OF PARK LAND PREVIOUSLY SOLD.

Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to authorize forthwith the transfer of certain land from the city of Fitchburg to the commonwealth, 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. The city of Fitchburg is hereby authorized to use a portion of the property described herein for the widening of North street and to sell and convey the remaining portion of said two parcels of park land or playground land with the buildings thereon, if any, located in said city to the commonwealth, for the use by Fitchburg state college for the general purposes of said college, the consideration for such sale and conveyance shall be $21,300 pending approval by the division of capital planning and operations.

Parcel 1. Being the same premises described by a deed from Raymond J. Belanger to George Cormier recorded in the Worcester northern district registry of deeds at Book 1170, Page 435, and acquired by said city of Fitchburg by tax taking, recorded in said registry at Book 1221, Page 114.

Parcel 2. Being the same premises described as parcel #5 in a deed from First Safety Fund National Bank and G. Gardner Cook to Charles K. Erban recorded in the Worcester northern district registry of deeds at Book 1054, Page 548 and acquired by said city of Fitchburg by the taking recorded in said registry at Book 1082, Page 212-214.

SECTION 2. The sale of two certain parcels of real estate, described below, formerly used for park and playground purposes by the city of Fitchburg and sold to E. Thomas Donnelly of said city of Fitchburg for other than park or playground purposes, by deeds dated April 24, 1990 and recorded in the Worcester northern district registry of deeds at Book 1957, Page 37 and Book 1957, Page 40, respectively, is hereby ratified and confirmed.
