Explanation

To authorize the Director of Recreation and Parks to execute instruments and documents as may be necessary to secure a Covenant Not To Sue (CNS) for Saunders Park including an environmental covenant, an Operation & Maintenance agreement, and any other additional documents and instruments that are necessary.

Background: The City of Columbus is working to obtain a Covenant Not To Sue (CNS) from the Ohio EPA through its Voluntary Action Program (VAP) for Saunders Park. At this time, the City through its consultant Burgess and Niple, is participating in Ohio EPA's VAP to secure a CNS for Saunders Park. As part of the VAP process to obtain a CNS, Burgess and Niple is completing a No Further Action (NFA) letter for approval by the Ohio EPA. The NFA letter will contain an Operation and Maintenance (O & M) agreement that commits the City to maintain and comply with an approved Operation and Maintenance plan for Saunders Park. In order to secure a CNS, the City is required to execute an environmental covenant, which will limit the use of the City-owned property to which this CNS applies to recreational land use pursuant to Ohio Revised Code ยงยง 5301.82 to 5301.92. This legislation seeks authorization to execute instruments and documents as may be necessary to secure a CNS for Saunders Park including an environmental covenant, an Operation & Management agreement, and any other additional documents and instruments that are necessary and incident thereto.
