WESX on the move?

I guess my question is: can you "abandon" a COL without regard to it's
needs? Where does that work into the process?

The town of Marblehead could do a "land taking" but as a town meeting
government, they don't have the funds available yet, and may not get them in

3.5 million doesn't sound like something I would expect them to pay for
