HMC’s 30 year lease is now in place!

HMC
Dear Friends and Supporters of Hingham Maritime Center, We would like to announce some wonderful news: last week, on December 15th 2016, Hingham Maritime Center and the Town of Hingham entered into a thirty year lease for Barnes Wharf. This lease provides HMC with a period of time to raise the required funds and construct a new boathouse and dock facility, and then thirty years to operate a maritime center. The lease was the product of almost two years of hard work from the Board of Selectmen, the Town Administrator’s Office, Town Counsel, the School Department, the Harbormaster’s Office and our own board and staff. We would like to thank everyone who contributed to this process—both past and present—and we are very excited to move forward with our planned development of Barnes…

General
Dear Friends of HMC, We are writing to share some great news and to ask you to show your support for HMC during a critical time in our organization’s history.  Since March 2015, when Town Meeting authorized the Board of Selectmen to enter a lease with HMC for Barnes Wharf, we have been working hard to negotiate the terms.  The town took its obligation to strike a fair bargain for the citizens very seriously and they drove a hard bargain on a variety of points. Overall, the goal of providing a long-term home for community boating in Hingham and better wharf-side amenities have been addressed in this document and we are excited to commence this undertaking. The final product is a lease that the Selectmen have now put out for…
