  • Chapter 219 AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE DIVISION OF CAPITAL ASSET MANAGEMENT AND MAINTENANCE TO GRANT A CERTAIN EASEMENT IN THE TOWN OF TEWKSBURY TO THE TEWKSBURY HOUSING AUTHORITY.

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. Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 40E to 40J, inclusive, of chapter 7 of the General Laws, the commissioner of the division of capital asset management and maintenance may grant to the Tewksbury Housing Authority an easement and right-of-way across certain parcels of land in the town which is bounded on 1 side by the westerly sideline of Livingston street. The easement shall include only the amount of land necessary for vehicular entry to, and exit from, the adjacent property and shall be prescribed in consultation with the department of public health. The easement and right-of-way is a portion of lot 30 on the town of Tewksbury Assessor's Map number 73, and shall be more precisely delineated by the commissioner based on the records in the Middlesex county registry of deeds or registry district of the land court, or on a survey, as the commissioner may determine to be appropriate. The Tewksbury Housing Authority or its contractor shall be responsible for any costs for appraisals, surveys and all other expenses and liabilities relating to the granting and exercise of the easement.

SECTION 2. If the easement and right-of-way ceases to be used for the purposes authorized herein or is used for any other purpose, then upon notice by the commissioner, all interest in the easement and right-of-way shall revert to the commonwealth upon terms and conditions as the commissioner may prescribe.

Approved August 7, 2002.
