Explanation

1.  Background

The City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, received a request from Aaron McDaniel on behalf of Blueprint Development Company asking that the City sell them an approximate 840 square foot (0.019 acre) portion of the North 17th Street Right-of-Way.  This right-of-way is an alley that runs east/west directionally and is just to the north of, and adjacent to, 222 North 17th Street, Parcel ID 010053782.

 

The portion of this right-of-way will be merged with the abutting parcel in order to build a new home at this site.  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 the City will not be adversely affected by the transfer of this right-of-way and no easement is to be retained. 

 

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.  A value of $2,100.00 was established to be deposited in Fund 7748, Project P537650, as consideration for the transfer of the requested right-of-way. 

 

This request went before the Land Review Commission on July 18, 2019.  After review of the request, the Land Review Commission voted to recommend the above referenced right-of-way be transferred to Blueprint Development Company at the cost of $2,100.00 to them.

 

2.  FISCAL IMPACT

The City will receive a total of $2,100.00 and the funds are to be deposited in Fund 7748, Project P537650, as consideration for the transfer of the requested right-of-way.
