Title: To authorize the Director of the Department of Public Service to execute those documents required to transfer a 0.132 acre portion of the Mt. Vernon Avenue right-of-way/property between Cleveland Avenue and East Spring Street to Columbus State Community College. ($0.00)
Explanation
1. Background:
The City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, received a request from Columbus State Community College asking that the City transfer to them an approximate 0.132 acre (5,750 square feet) portion of the Mt. Vernon Avenue right-of-way/property between Cleveland Avenue and East Spring Street. Transfer of this right-of-way/property will facilitate the development of property adjacent to the above noted right-of-way/property owned by Columbus State Community College. The Department of Public Service has agreed to transfer the right-of-way/property as described below. Per current practice, comments were solicited from interested parties, including City agencies, private utilities and the applicable area commission, before it was determined that, subject to the retention of a general utility easement for those utilities currently located within this right-of-way/property, the City will not be adversely affected by the transfer of this right-of-way/property. The Department of Public Service submitted a request to the City Attorney's Office asking that they establish a value for this right-of-way/property. A value of $46,000.00 was established for this right-of-way/property. Columbus State Community College had requested mitigation and this request went before the Land Review Commission on August 20, 2018. After review of the request, the Land Review Commission voted to support the request of full mitigation and transfer the right-of-way/property to Columbus State Community College at no cost.
