Brewster Select Board and Cape Cod Sea Camps’ Owners Sign Contracts for Town Purchase of Sea Camps Properties
Brewster, Massachusetts – The Brewster Select Board and the Delahanty family have signed Purchase and Sale Agreements that will permit the Town to buy both Cape Cod Sea Camps parcels. The Agreements are legal contracts that establish the terms of the real estate transaction. The Town will close on the property by November 30, 2021 if Brewster voters approve the purchase at Special Town Meeting on Sunday September 26 and at the upcoming local election.
“On behalf of the Delahanty family, we are pleased to have reached a consensual and collaborative agreement with the Town of Brewster for the sale of the former Cape Cod Sea Camps real estate,” said James Fleet, Shareholder of Phoenix Management and spokesperson for the Delahanty family.
“While we were fortunate to receive several compelling offers for the properties, we ultimately believed the Town’s offer provided the best outcome for the family and the Town and would leave a lasting legacy to the community. As such there are no other offers under consideration at this time and absolutely no other contingency agreements at this time,” Fleet said.
“Brewster residents have the opportunity to consider acquiring these two remarkable properties through a negotiated sale thanks to the willingness of the Delahanty family to partner with the Town to achieve these results,” said Town Administrator Peter Lombardi. “On behalf of the Select Board, I’d like to extend our sincere appreciation,” Lombardi added.
Special Town Meeting is the first of two steps Brewster voters need to participate in to consider acquiring the Sea Camps. The second step for Brewster voters is to take part in the Special Election either at the polls on Tuesday October 5 or by mail-in ballot.
More information on all aspects of the Town’s acquisition of Cape Cod Sea Camps is available on the Town of Brewster website.
