AN ACT DESIGNATING A PROPOSED WALKING PATH IN THE BELLE ISLE MARSH AREA IN THE TOWN OF WINTHROP AS THE JOHN KILMARTIN WALKWAY.
Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to designate forthwith a proposed walking path in the town of Winthrop as the John Kilmartin Walkway, 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:
A certain walking path to be constructed from the Short Beach along Winthrop Parkway to Belle Isle Creek in the Belle Isle Marsh area of Winthrop shall be designated and known as the John Kilmartin Walkway, in honor of John Kilmartin, in recognition of his many contributions to conservation efforts in Belle Isle Marsh. The department of conservation and recreation shall erect and maintain a suitable marker bearing that designation in compliance with the standards of the department.
Approved, January 14, 2011.
