AN ACT PROVIDING FOR A PARTIAL RELEASE OF CERTAIN LAND IN SUNDERLAND FROM THE OPERATION OF AN AGRICULTURAL PRESERVATION RESTRICTION.
Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to forthwith provide for the partial release of an agricultural preservation restriction on certain land in the town of Sunderland, 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, and pursuant to section 40E of chapter 7 and section 32 of chapter 184 of the General Laws, the commissioner of capital asset management and maintenance, in consultation with the commissioner of agricultural resources, may execute a certificate of release which will constitute a complete and unconditional release of a parcel of land from an agricultural preservation restriction originally granted by Charles N. Warner and Jacqueline M. Warner to the commonwealth and recorded in book 2730, page 29 at the Franklin county registry of deeds. The parcel to be released from the agricultural preservation restriction is more particularly described as follows:
A certain parcel of land located in Sunderland, Franklin County, Massachusetts with the buildings thereon, being described as Lot 3, containing 42,264 square feet on a plan of land entitled “Plan of Land in Sunderland, Mass. Surveyed for Charles N. & Jacqueline M. Warner dated April 16, 1988” and recorded in the Franklin county registry of deeds in plan book 75, plan 4.
SECTION 2. Except as partially released by the recording of the certificate of release of the parcel executed by the commissioner of capital asset management and maintenance and the commissioner of agricultural resources, as authorized by this act, the original agricultural preservation restriction shall remain in full force and effect.
