The 191st General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts


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. Chapter 434 of the acts of 1975 is hereby amended by adding the following section:-

Section 2. The ways listed in section 1 shall include the entire width of the layout as approved by the board of selectmen and voted by the town of Nantucket under Article 17 of the annual town meeting in 1975. For Bartlett road, Beach walk, Cambridge street (north of Madaket road), Cato lane, Coffin way, Cornish street, Eel Point road, Henry street, James street, Johnson street, Low Beach road, Macy lane, Somerset road, Vestal street extension, Washington avenue, Washington street extension, and Wesco place (plus 40), any reference in the article to “paved sections” shall be only for the purpose of identifying the length of those ways, as each existed in 1975, which were to have the benefit of this act to correct any failure to comply with final recording requirements. If the paved sections of those ways differed in width from the layout plans of record at that time, the article and this act shall not alter any street layout as to width. If a paved section, as it existed in 1975, was not paved to the full width of the corresponding dimensional plan of record laying out the street, the article and this act shall not exclude the unpaved shoulders of that way, if it were included in the corresponding layout plan.

SECTION 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage.
