Title: To authorize the Director of the Department of Public Service to execute those documents necessary for the transfer of a 0.013 acre portion of the unimproved east/west right-of-way south of Bryden Road between Allen and Monroe Avenues to AC Kerr Properties. ($0.00)
Attachments: 1. Exhibit - 2017-017
Explanation
1. Background:
The City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, received a request from Andrew W. Kerr, Agent and owner of AC Kerr Properties, abutting property owner, asking that the City sell an approximate 572 square foot (0.013 acres) portion of the unimproved east/west right-of-way south of Bryden Road between Allen and Monroe Avenues.

Sale of this right-of-way will resolve an encroachment issue and provide enhanced parking for the property adjacent to the above noted right-of-way. 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 $858.00 was established. This request went before the Land Review Commission in October of 2018. After review of the request, the Land Review Commission voted to recommend the above referenced right-of-way be transferred to Andrew W. Kerr, Agent and owner of AC Kerr Properties, at the cost of $858.00.

2. FISCAL IMPACT:
The City will receive a total of $858.00 and the funds are to be deposited in Fund 7748, Project P537650, as consideration for the transfer of the requested right-of-way.
