  • Chapter 289 AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE DIVISION OF CAPITAL ASSET MANAGEMENT AND MAINTENANCE TO LEASE CERTAIN BUILDINGS AND PARK LAND IN THE TOWN OF HULL FOR DEVELOPMENT PURPOSES.

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to provide forthwith for the lease of certain land in the town of Hull, 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 sections 40E to 40I, inclusive, of chapter 7 of the General Laws, the commissioner of capital asset management and maintenance, in consultation with the commissioner of conservation and recreation, may lease a certain parcel of land and any improvements thereon for not less than 99 years, currently under the control of and used by the department of conservation and recreation for conservation and recreation purposes, to the town of Hull, for the purposes of economic development, subject to the requirements of sections 2 and 3 and to such additional terms and conditions consistent with this act as the commissioner of capital asset management and maintenance may prescribe in consultation with the commissioner of conservation and recreation. The parcel, shown on assessor’s map 37, lots 001-A and 008, being a portion of the Nantasket Beach Reservation, is bounded by Nantasket avenue on the east, Hull Shore drive on the north, George Washington boulevard on the west and Wharf avenue on the south. The exact boundaries of the parcel shall be established prior to execution of the lease by a survey approved by the commissioner of capital asset management and maintenance.
Modification to the terms described above may be made prior to the conveyance in order to carry out the purposes of this act.

SECTION 2. The lease authorized in section 1 shall be granted only if the lessee agrees to assume the costs of any surveys and other expenses deemed necessary by the commissioner of capital asset management and maintenance for the lease.

SECTION 3. The town of Hull shall compensate the commonwealth for the property described in section 1 by providing necessary storage space for maintenance equipment of the department of conservation and recreation.
