EXPLANATION

BACKGROUND:

The City owns real property located at 4990 Olentangy River Road, Columbus, Ohio 43214, which is commonly known as Anheuser Busch Sports Park {Franklin County Tax Parcel 010-074024}(“Property”). The Property is managed by the Recreation and Parks Department (“CRPD”) and is further described and recorded in Deed Book 3167 Page, 134, Recorder’s Office, Franklin County, Ohio. The Ohio Power Company, an Ohio corporation doing business as American Electric Power (“AEP”), has electric services on the property currently located in an easement Recorded in Deed Book 3602, Page 66. The City of Columbus is engaged in a booster station project along Bethel Road that requires the poles and underground electric service to be relocated. AEP now requests the applicable electric utility easements burdening a portion of the Property in order to maintain certain electric facilities and associated appurtenances for the distribution, delivery, and service of electrical energy and impulses for the benefit of the Property and real estate in the Property’s vicinity (“Easement”). CRPD, working with the Department of Utilities, reviewed the plans and support granting AEP the Easements at no cost in consideration that (i) the Easements support electricity services to the Property and in the vicinity of the Property, (ii) the Easements will be nonexclusive, and (iii) AEP releases their existing easement rights found in Deed Book 3602, Page 66.
