The Marion Open Space Acquisition Commission approved the final version of the conservation restriction for the Hoff Property during its January 7 meeting.
The version was sent to MOSAC by the state Division of Conservation Services.
MOSAC member Amanda Chace moved to approve the final version of the conservation restriction for the Hoff Property. Member Casey Gunschel seconded “that emotion,” drawing laughs. The members voted in favor, except for Alan Harris, who abstained.
Chace thanked Chairman John Rockwell for his effort in working out the details.
As Rockwell explained during the meeting, the Buzzards Bay Coalition and the Town of Marion are the present owners of the conservation restriction, but the BBC is expected to sell its interest to the Sippican Lands Trust after MOSAC acquires the conservation restriction.
MOSAC members will report to the Town House for signatures that must be notarized by January 19.
After the approval of past meeting minutes, MOSAC broke into an executive session to discuss a piece of property per state General Law 30A, Section 21a Purpose 6 under the state Open Meeting Law.
The next meeting of the Marion Open Space Acquisition Commission is scheduled for Thursday, February 4.
