EXPLANATION

BACKGROUND:

The City owns real property located at 2100 Alum Creek Drive, Columbus, Ohio 43207 {Franklin County Tax Parcel 010-014029} (“Property”). The property is managed by the Department of Finance and Management (“Finance”) and is further described and recorded in Deed Book 3381 Page, 134, Recorder’s Office, Franklin County, Ohio. Columbia Gas of Ohio, Inc. (“Columbia Gas”) provides natural gas service to this property to serve three buildings used by the Department of Public Service Division of Refuse Collection. In conjunction with replacement of gas lines due to the Alum Creek Road Widening Project, Columbia Gas is currently engaged in upgrading and replacing the natural gas service lines currently serving the buildings. Columbia Gas is requesting a permanent 0.292 acre subsurface natural gas easement for a two-inch medium pressure main line (“Easement”) and 0.174 and 0.295 acre temporary access and construction easements (“Construction Easement”) to burden a portion of the Property in order to install and maintain underground natural gas pipeline(s) and associated appurtenances for the transport of odorized natural gas to exclusively benefit the Property. Finance reviewed the plans and supports granting Columbia Gas the Easement in consideration that (i) the Easement supports the exclusive delivery of odorized natural gas to the property, (ii) the new pipeline installed in the Easement is designated a “main” line for which Columbia Gas is responsible for maintenance, and (iii) the Easement is non-exclusive.
