Title: To authorize the Director of the Department of Public Service to execute those documents necessary for the transfer of a 0.014 acre portion of the unimproved east/west right-of-way south of Bryden Road between Allen and Monroe Avenues to Erin N. Murphy. ($0.00)
Attachments: 1. Exhibit - 2017-017
Explanation
1. Background:
The City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, received a request from Erin N. Murphy, abutting property owner, asking that the City sell her an approximate 588 square foot (0.014 acre) 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 $882.00 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 Erin N. Murphy at the cost of $882.00.

2. FISCAL IMPACT:
The City will receive a total of $882.00 and the funds are to be deposited in Fund 7748, Project P537650, as consideration for the transfer of the requested right-of-way.
