Explanation

BACKGROUND: The City’s Department of Public Service (“DPS”) is performing the Roadway Improvements - Sinclair Road Sidewalks TIF Capital Fund Project (“Public Project”). The City must acquire certain fee simple title and lesser real property interests located in the vicinity of Sinclair Road between Morse Road and Strimple Avenue (collectively, “Real Estate”) in order for DPS to timely complete the Public Project. The City passed Ordinance Number 1849-2018 authorizing the City Attorney to acquire the Real Estate. Furthermore, the City also adopted Resolution 0194X-2019 establishing the City’s intent to appropriate the Real Estate. The City’s acquisition of the Real Estate will help make, improve, or repair certain portions of real property in the vicinity of Sinclair Road between Morse Road and Strimple Avenue which will be open to the public without charge.

The City Attorney, pursuant to Columbus City Code Section 909.03, served notice to all of the owners of the Real Estate of the (i) Public Project’s public purpose and necessity, and (ii) adoption of Resolution 0194X-2019. However, the City Attorney was unable to either locate some of the Real Estate’s owner(s) or agree with some of the Real Estate’s owner(s) in good faith regarding the amount of just compensation.

CONTRACT COMPLIANCE: Not applicable.

FISCAL IMPACT: Funding to appropriate the Real Estate will come from the Morse Road TIF Ord. No. 2179 01 ORC 40, Fund No. 7414 pursuant to existing Auditor’s Certificate ACDI000612-10.

EMERGENCY JUSTIFICATION: Emergency action is requested in order to acquire the Real Estate and allow DPS to timely complete the Public Project without unnecessary delay, which will preserve the public peace, health, property, safety and welfare.
