TOWN OF WEST BOYLSTON
REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR LEASE/DEVELOPMENT OF A PARCEL OF TOWN-OWNED LAND
The Board of Selectmen of the Town of West Boylston, Massachusetts, invites sealed proposals for the development of a parcel of town-owned land. Proposals shall be submitted in a sealed envelope clearly marked “Proposal for the Development of Town Property on Paul X. Tivnan Drive” and with the developer’s name and address. Sealed proposals shall be received in the Office of the Town Administrator, West Boylston Municipal Office, 127 Hartwell Street, West Boylston, MA 01583 no later than 1:00 p.m. on January 28, 2010, at which time proposals will be opened publicly.
A pre-proposal conference will be held in the West Boylston Municipal Office at 1:00 p.m. on January 15, 2010 to respond to any questions concerning the RFP or the process for the award of the ground lease. This meeting will be followed by a site visit at 2:00 p.m. on the same day.
The Property was conveyed to the Town by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and is subject to a restriction requiring its use for “municipal services, including parks and recreational uses”. Title to the land reverts to the Commonwealth in the event the land is used for some other purpose. However, the reverter will not apply if the Commonwealth provides prior approval of the use of the land for some other purpose. The Town is soliciting offers for the purchase or ground lease of a portion of the Property consisting of approximately 10 to 12 acres.
This conveyance is subject to G. L. c. 30B, §16, G.L. c. 40, §3 and the award of any sale or ground lease pursuant to this solicitation will be contingent upon a Town Meeting vote authorizing the transaction, as well as any prior approval of the Commonwealth required depending upon the proposed use of the land. The Town reserves the right to reject any and all proposals, or to cancel this RFP.
To obtain a copy of the Request for Proposals, please contact the Town Administrator’s Office at the above address, or by calling 508-835-3490, or visit the town’s web site at www.westboylston-ma.gov. The RFP is attached to this document.
