BACKGROUND: Ordinance 2234-2019 authorized the Director of the Department of Development to transfer one parcel (010-027792) to WP Properties QOZB, LLC., who was required to split the parcel and deed half of the land back to the City. The transfer was to provide a house owned by the buyer access to an alley to construct a new sanitary sewer connection. Another parcel, 291-293 E. Eighth Ave. (010-008699) was conveyed to the City from Campus Partners for Community Urban Redevelopment and is to be combined with half of parcel 010-027792.

While under review for the lot split, an additional sewer line was identified on parcel 010-008699 that serves an adjacent building. This Ordinance authorizes the Director of the Department of Development to execute any and all easements necessary to complete the lot split.

FISCAL IMPACT: No fiscal impact.

EMERGENCY JUSTIFICATION: Emergency action is requested to enable the City to immediately grant the easement to allow the lot split and new sewer line.
