Selectmen veto plan for historic designation

Selectmen recently shot down a local artists group’s request to have the former state police station across from Nantasket Beach placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Judeth Van Hamm said Hull Artists wanted the designation so it could apply for matching grants to renovate the vacant turn–of-the-century building for studios, classrooms, and galleries. But selectmen were concerned that the designation would hamper their efforts to develop the entire two-acre site that includes the police station. Hull won the right in 2010 to lease the ocean-view acreage, which is owned by the state and occupied by buildings that are either vacant or used for offices and storage. The town has been looking for a private developer to do something with the property. “I have no idea what happens next,” Van Hamm said of her group’s plans. “We’re going to the Planning Board in November to ask where we sit in the whole picture.”
