Explanation
1. Background:
The City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, received a request from David Perry on behalf of his client, Shiloh Baptist Church of Columbus, to sell an approximate 2,309+/- square foot (0.053 Acre) portion of the unimproved Right-of-Way. This portion of Right-of-Way runs east/west directionally and is bounded by Brier Alley to the West, Hamilton Avenue to the East, Mt. Vernon Avenue to the North, and East Spring Street to the South.

Sale of this Right-of-Way will allow incorporation of the parcels to the north of the right-of-way with the parcel to the south of the right-of-way for the development of new housing. The Department of Public Service has agreed to sell the Right-of-Way as described and shown within attached legal description and exhibit, and extinguishes its need for this public Right-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 this Right-of-Way, the City will not be adversely affected by the transfer of this Right-of-Way. 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, and a value of $8,081.50 was established. Mitigation was not requested. This request went before the Land Review Commission on June 20, 2019. After review of the request, the Land Review Commission voted to recommend the above referenced Right-of-Way be transferred to Shiloh Baptist Church of Columbus at the cost of $8,081.50.

2. FISCAL IMPACT:
There is no expenditure of City funds for this transfer. The City will receive a total of $8,081.50 and the funds are to be deposited in Fund 7748, Project P537650, as consideration for the transfer of the requested right-of-way.
