Explanation

1. BACKGROUND:
In 2015, pursuant to Ordinance 3144-2015, the City of Columbus disposed of the unnamed east/west right-of-way east of Pearl Street between 8th and 9th Avenues. The City reserved a general utility easement for those utilities located within this right-of-way at that time. The subject parcel is scheduled for development by Edwards Communities Development Company. The Department of Public Service recently received a request from Edwards Communities Development Company, developer of the property for this project, asking that the City release a portion of the reserved general utility easement from this property to help clear title and allow for the building development. After receipt of this request the Division of Infrastructure Management verified with all the public and private utility companies that there are no public utilities located within this reserved general utility easement and that they have no objections to the release of the portion of this easement. The following legislation authorizes the Director of the Department of Public Service to execute those documents necessary to release a portion of the general utility easement that was retained in 2015 pursuant to Ordinance 3144-2015. A value of $500.00 was established for the release of this portion of the general utility easement.

2. Fiscal Impact
The City will receive a total of $500.00, to be deposited in Fund 7748, Project P537650, for granting this portion of easements to be released.
