Explanation
1. Background:
The City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, received a request from Curtis Echelberry on behalf of The Boys and Girls Club of Columbus regarding the sale of an approximate 0.055 acre (2,396± square feet) portion of the right-of-way of an unnamed alley running north/south directionally, that is the first alley north of Gibbard Avenue and the first alley east of Cleveland Avenue.

The right-of-way will provide a connection between a proposed parking lot and the main building lot, allowing for safer pedestrian travel between the two lots. 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 $23,958.00 was established. Mitigation was not requested. This request went before the Land Review Commission on November 21, 2019. After review of the request, the Land Review Commission voted to recommend the above referenced right-of-way be transferred to The Boys and Girls Club of Columbus at the cost of $23,958.00.

2. FISCAL IMPACT:
The City will receive a total of $23,958.00 and the funds are to be deposited in Fund 7748, Project P537650, as consideration for the transfer of the requested right-of-way.
