Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
The following legislation authorizes the City Attorney's Office, Real Estate Division to hire professional services and to negotiate with property owners to acquire the various property rights necessary to complete the Shook Road Phase II project in the Rickenbacker Planning Area (26).

The Department of Public service is engaged in the Shook Road Phase II project. The project will widen Shook Road (north of SR 317) to provide a SB right turn lane and widening of SR 317 to provide both WB and EB left turn lanes at the intersection; construct sidewalk along the west and east side of Shook Road from SR 317 north to existing sidewalk limits; a new box span signal will be installed at the intersection of SR 317 and Shook Road; and extend the southern limits to mill & resurface Shook Road to the Franklin County Line.

The cost to acquire the right-of-way needed to complete the project is estimated at $100,000.00. If the cost to acquire the needed right-of-way should exceed this estimate, additional legislation will be submitted to Council requesting the needed funding.

The Department of Public service is currently finalizing construction plans and is prepared to authorize right-of-way acquisition pending passage of this funding legislation.

Funds in the amount of $100,000.00 are available for this project in Fund 7766, the Street & Highway Improvement Non-Bond Fund. These funds were deposited by the Columbus-Franklin County Finance Authority on behalf of the Pizzuti Companies, the company that is the developer for the project.

Emergency action is requested to provide necessary right-of-way acquisition funding and prevent unnecessary delays in the Department of Public Service's Capital Improvement Program.
