MMLA Webinar: Municipal Land Acquisitions and Dispositions 101

On May 26, 2022, the New Lawyers Committee of MMLA hosted a webinar panel on municipal land acquisitions and dispositions. This program was geared towards lawyers new to the practice of municipal law; but all were welcome to attend!  Attendees learned from Mina Makarious (Anderson & Kreiger), Jennie Merrill (Miyares & Harrington), and Emily Izzo (DOR’s Bureau of Municipal Finance Law). Topics included Chapter 30B, eminent domain, land restrictions, Article 97, town meeting requirements, purchase and sale agreements, and financing issues. The program was free and open to non-MMLA members who wanted to learn the nuts and bolts of municipal land transactions.
