EXPLANATION

BACKGROUND: The City and the State of Ohio, Department of Transportation (“ODOT”) are currently engaged in a joint project to transform the I70/71 corridor through downtown. The construction will encompass several individual projects and phases. As a part of ODOT’s FRA-70-12.68 project (“Project”), the City previously passed Ordinance 2882-2019 authorizing the granting of several parcels for the Project. ODOT is now seeking an additional 96 month temporary easement on an approximately 0.2035 acre parcel known as parcel 6-T1 (“Real Estate”).

The following legislation authorizes the City’s Director of the Department of Finance and Management to execute right of entries and/or temporary easements, as approved by the Columbus City Attorney, Real Estate Division, in order for ODOT to complete the Project.

FISCAL IMPACT: Not applicable.

EMERGENCY JUSTIFICATION: Emergency action is requested in order to not delay the benefit to the City resulting from ODOT’s Project, which will preserve the public peace, health, property, safety and welfare.
