Chapter 115 AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAYS TO ACQUIRE AND TRANSFER CERTAIN PARCELS OF LAND IN THE TOWN OF BOURNE.

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is forthwith to acquire and transfer certain parcels of land in the town of Bourne, 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. Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, the department of highways may acquire, by eminent domain, purchase or otherwise, all parcels of land, or portions thereof, in the town of Bourne, which are shown on a plan entitled "Plan of Alternate Entrance to Proposed Bourne Elementary School" dated 4/11/2005. The department may further convey by deed to any party whose land is so acquired pursuant to this section any parcels of land, or portions thereof, which are owned by the commonwealth and which are shown on the above referenced plan. This transfer shall be upon such terms and conditions as the department may prescribe for the sale or transfer and may be in full or partial consideration for any land acquired by the department from such private party.

SECTION 2. The plan referred to in section 1 shall be kept on file with the chief engineer of the department of highways.

Approved October 27, 2005.
