Middlefield selectmen voted 3-0 on Thursday night to sell the 19.67 acre property divided from Powder Ridge ski area last year.
The town split the property from the ski area in June 2012 and town leaders have now agreed to sell the land to Middlefield resident Lori Vogel-Brown for $300,000.
The sale is subject to a right of first refusal clause that exists in the town's sales agreement with Powder Ridge Mountain Park and Resort LLC which gives the company an opportunity to match Vogel-Brown's offer.
First Selectman Jon Brayshaw said Thursday's approval by the board triggered a 30-day period for the company to offer to buy the property or let it be sold, although he said there's no indication the company is interested in the property.
Once Powder Ridge Mountain Park and Resort acts on the right of first refusal, a public hearing on the sale must be held within 10 days. Middlefield residents will then vote on the sale at a town meeting.
