Explanation
1. Background:
The City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, received a request from Dan Heckman of Alpha Architectural Services on behalf of Al Rahma Mosque asking that the City sell them an approximate 7,500+/- square foot (0.17 acre) portion of the unimproved unnamed north/south right-of-way east of Westerville Road between Albert Avenue and Mecca Road.

Sale of this Right-of-Way will facilitate the development of property adjacent to the above noted right-of-way, provide additional parking, and allow connectivity between all of the surrounding parcels owned by The Al Rahma Mosque. The Department of Public Service has agreed to sell the Right-of-Way as described and shown within the 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 $4,438.00 was established. Mitigation was not requested. This request went before the Land Review Commission on September 20, 2018. After review of the request, the Land Review Commission voted to recommend the above referenced Right-of-Way be transferred to Al Rahma Mosque at the cost of $4,438.00.

The City will not expend funds to transfer the right-of-way. The City will receive a total of $4,438.00 and the funds are to be deposited in Fund 7748, Project P537650, as consideration for the transfer of the requested right-of-way.
