Explanation
1. Background:
The City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, received a request from Kumiko Matsuura and James King asking that the City sell them an approximate 0.052 acre portion of the right-of-way which is an unimproved alley running east/west directionally and is just to the north of and adjacent to 654 Miner Avenue.

The purpose of the transfer of this right-of-way is for yard expansion to allow cleaning and maintenance of the property in an attempt to eliminate illegal littering and dumping. The Department of Public Service has agreed to sell the right-of-way as described below 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 $906.00 was established. Mitigation was not requested. This request went before the Land Review Commission on August 15, 2019. After review of the request, the Land Review Commission voted to recommend the above referenced right-of-way be transferred to Kumiko Matsuura and James B King at the cost of $906.00 to them.

2. FISCAL IMPACT:
The City will receive a total of $906.00 and the funds are to be deposited in Fund 7748, Project P537650, as consideration for the transfer of the requested right-of-way.
