Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
The town of Truro may, subject to the
approval of the secretary of environmental affairs, convey a certain parcel
of land acquired for conservation and watershed protection purposes, located
in the town, to Albert R. and Nancy B. Silva of Truro for
the sole purpose of constructing a driveway and underground utilities. Upon
its conveyance by the town, the parcel shall
continue to be subject to a conservation restriction in accordance with
sections 31 to 33, inclusive,
of chapter 184 of the
General Laws. The
parcel to be conveyed by the town is shown as Parcel C on a plan of land
entitled "Plan of Land in Truro, Mass" drawn by Felco, Inc. Engineering/Land
Surveying, Orleans, Mass., dated September 27, 2000 which is on file in the
office of the town clerk.
In consideration for the conveyance authorized in
section 1, Albert R. and Nancy B. Silva shall
convey a certain parcel of land, located in the town, to the town. The
parcel is shown as Parcel A on the plan described in section 1.
Upon its conveyance to the town by said Albert R. and
Nancy B. Silva, the parcel shall be held by the town for the purposes of
promoting and developing the town's natural
resources and for the protection of watershed resources.
The conveyances described in this act shall be authorized
only if the value of Parcel A is of equal or greater value to the full and
fair market value of Parcel C based upon 1 or more professional and
appraisals prepared for the town of Truro. The inspector general shall review
and comment on the appraisal, and said review and comment shall
include an examination of the methodology used for the appraisal.
The town shall, 30 days prior to the execution of any
deed conveying Parcel C, submit to said inspector general the deeds
together with the proposed deed to Parcel A to be conveyed in exchange
for Parcel C. The inspector general shall prepare a report of his
of the deeds and file the report with the house and senate committees on ways
and means and with the chairmen of the joint committee on local affairs at
least 15 days prior to its execution.
If Albert R. and Nancy B. Silva
violate the terms of the conservation restriction imposed
on Parcel C by section 1, the land
shall revert to the town of Truro.
This act shall take effect upon its passage.
