Settlement Likely in Kline Land Dispute

 The parties involved in the dispute over the Kline property on Stephens Way are well on their way to concluding a settlement, according to local reporters and the State Appeals Court docket.  The lawsuit alleges that the Kline property received an illegal permit for construction, and the abutters also sued the Town of Truro on the same grounds.  The settlement between the Klines and their two abutters seems to revolve around more set-aside of land for conservation.  But that cannot overcome the Court’s ruling that the Town Building Commissioner improperly permitted the construction nor the Court’s  order that the Truro ZBA convene to overturn the building permit. This could still result in a tear-down of the property. The legal maneuvers continue to forestall that outcome.  But as this is a separate legal action from the case reaching a settlement, the Town intends to act on the Court’s orders in its case.  No date has been set for this ZBA meeting.  For more info, see this link:
