Explanation

BACKGROUND: The City’s Department of Recreation and Parks (“CRPD”) is performing the FRA-Johnstown Rd-Alum Creek Trail (PID 99828) Public Improvement Project (“Public Project”). The City must acquire certain fee simple title and lesser real property interests located in the vicinity of Johnstown Road and Parkview Boulevard Columbus, OH 43219 (collectively, “Real Estate”) in order for CRPD to timely complete the Public Project.
