On January 8, 2018 the town council authorized the town manager to consider the offer from Marc Greichen and Sandra Elliott to purchase Lot U3-92 off Ocean View Road for $35,000 and to refer the request for purchase to the conservation committee for review.
The conservation committee met on February 13, 2018 and voted 7-0 to make the following recommendation to the town council.
The Conservation Committee recommends that the town owned lot U3-92 not be sold to preserve options for future greenbelt connectivity and neighborhood open space. If the lot is sold, the Conservation Committee recommends that a 15’ wide easement be retained on the southeast corner and the proceeds of the sale be placed in the land acquisition fund.
On March 12, 2018 the town council authorized the town manager to continue discussions with Marc Greichen and Sandra Elliott on their offer and bring back to the town council for consideration a purchase and sale agreement with conditions as suggested by the conservation committee.
ORDERED, the Cape Elizabeth Town Council approves the sale of town owned property on Ocean
View Road, Tax Map U03 Lot 92, to Marc Greichen and Sandra Elliott for the price of $90,000, and
upon such other terms and conditions as the town manager shall approve. Further, the town manager
is authorized to execute and deliver a release deed for such property, together with such other
documents as he deems necessary or appropriate.
