Chapter 162 AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE GRANTING OF EASEMENTS AND THE CONVEYANCE OF CERTAIN LAND IN THE TOWN OF ANDOVER.

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to authorize forthwith the conveyance and acceptance of interests in real estate, 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 chapters 30, 30B, 41 and 149 of the General Laws, chapters 213 and 372 of the acts of 2000 or any other general or special law to the contrary, the board of selectmen and the conservation commission of the town of Andover and the school committee of the Greater Lawrence Regional Vocational Technical High School may grant and accept easements in real estate and may convey and accept conveyances of real estate lying between River road and the Merrimack river as shown on the plan entitled “Proposed Conveyance Plan of Land in Andover, Massachusetts,” dated April 17, 1995, Revised January 12, 2009, by Dana F. Perkins, Inc. on file in the office of the town clerk and within parcels C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J and K as appearing on the plan, and the final location of Parcels J and K as appearing on the plan and the final location of any easements or conveyances within Parcels C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J and K as appearing on the plan shall be determined by the board of selectmen, the conservation commission and the school committee of the Greater Lawrence Regional Vocational Technical High School in consultation and agreement with the trustees of Phillips Academy.
