Easements move forward

The Town last month posted at its Mass. Ave. web page the draft plan for hundreds of easements related to the Mass. Ave project.

These easements are all small. All but six are temporary. They are primarily to give contractors rights to enter or touch abutters’ properties during reconstruction of the sidewalks.

Six permanent easements accommodate larger curb ramps and other modifications required under the Americas for Disabilities Act. None are needed for any of the work on the street portion of the project.

Each easement is specifically delineated on in the draft plan.

Town Meeting granted authority for these easements in 2011. They are just one of the many pieces that must be in place to qualify for funding.

The Town will contact each affected property owner as part of this process.
