DMV RMV at Gloucester Crossing Part 2: Legislators Urge Decision on new site for Registry
The decision on the location for a new North Shore DMV registry branch remains undecided. There are service centers on the other peninsula, Cape Cod. Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard host full DMV service centers as do towns with smaller populations, like Greenfield and North Adams. There isn’t a uniform state model.
The day after the GMG post musing What about a DMV branch at Gloucester Crossing?, Paul Leighton wrote an article in yesterday’s Gloucester Daily Times “Legislators urge decision on new site for Registry” Thursday February 2, 2017 with more info.
According to the article: “Six property owners submitted bids in October. A spokesman for the Division of Capital Asset Management & Maintenance, which oversees state leasing, said those bids are still being reviewed…In addition to Speliotis, local legislators who signed the letter to the state included state Sen. Joan Lovely of Salem and state Reps. Paul Tucker of Salem, Tom Walsh of Peabody, Jerry Parisella of Beverly, Lori Ehrlich of Marblehead and Brad Hill of Ipswich, who represents Manchester.”
Leighton’s prior Gloucester Daily Times article about the DMV branch location “Registry considers Peabody, Beverly sites for new branch” was published July 21, 2016.
