  • Chapter 249 AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE COMMONWEALTH TO CONVEY A CERTAIN PARCEL OF LAND IN THE TOWN OF DARTMOUTH.

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to provide forthwith for the conveyance of land in the town of Dartmouth for veterans housing, 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 section 40E through 40J, inclusive, of chapter 7 of the General Laws or any other general or special law to the contrary, the commissioner of capital asset management and maintenance, may convey a parcel of land located at 262 State road in the town of Dartmouth, formerly known as the Massachusetts State Police Barracks in Dartmouth, to the Dartmouth Housing Authority to provide affordable housing for veterans. The parcel is described in book 01062, page 0496 of the Bristol county southern district registry of deeds. This parcel of land was purchased by the commonwealth on September 24, 1952.

SECTION 2. The consideration for the conveyance to the Dartmouth Housing Authority shall be $1. The Dartmouth Housing Authority shall be responsible for all costs and expenses of the transaction authorized by this act as determined by the commissioner of capital asset management and maintenance, including, but not limited to, expenses relating to the conveyance of the parcel and shall be responsible for all costs, liabilities and expenses for its leasehold.

SECTION 3. The deed or other instrument conveying the property described in section 1 to the Dartmouth Housing Authority or its successors in title, shall provide that if for any reason the property ceases to be used solely for the purposes described in section 1, title to the property shall revert to the commonwealth under the care and control of the division of capital asset management and maintenance following the giving of written notice and an opportunity to cure in accordance with a procedure to be specified in the deed conveying the property and upon the recording of a notice by the commissioner with the Bristol county southern district registry of deeds and any further disposition shall be subject to sections 40E to 40J, inclusive, of chapter 7 of the General Laws and to the prior approval of the general court.
