Explanation
1. Background
The City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, received a request from Sean M. Sprouse, on behalf of NAS 6, LLC, asking that the City sell them four pieces of City owned right-of-way: an approximate 2,250 square foot portion of the unimproved right-of-way north of Whitehead Road; an approximate 1,300 square foot portion of the unimproved right-of-way north of Whitehead Road; an approximate 4,750 square foot portion of the Midland Avenue right-of-way; and an approximate 2,800 square foot portion of the unimproved right-of-way north of Whitehead Road. The requested right-of-way totals approximately 11,100 square feet or 0.1895 acres.

Sale of these rights-of-way will facilitate the combining of parcels allowing the redevelopment of property adjacent to the above noted rights-of-way with single-unit and/or multi-unit residences controlled by NAS 6, LLC. The Department of Public Service has agreed to sell the rights-of-way as described and shown within attached legal descriptions and exhibits, and extinguishes its need for these public rights-of-way. 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 these rights-of-way, the City will not be adversely affected by the transfer of these rights-of-way. The Department of Public Service submitted a request to the City Attorney's Office asking that they establish a value for these rights-of-way, and a value of $6,660.00 was established. Sean M. Sprouse, on behalf of NAS 6, LLC, requested mitigation. This request went before the Land Review Commission on January 18, 2018. After review of the request, the Land Review Commission voted to recommend the above referenced rights-of-way be transferred to NAS 6, LLC, at no cost to them.
