Explanation
1. Background:
The City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, received a request from James Miller of the City of Columbus, Recreation and Parks Department, asking that the City transfer to them an approximate 0.1378 acre portion of the right-of-way adjacent to Douglas Street and described as the following; Right-of-way area runs north / south directionally and is within PID 010-033923. North to south it measures approximately 300 feet+/- and east to west it measures approximately 20 feet. E. Capital Street abuts at the north and Agate Alley abuts at the south.

Transfer of this right-of-way is to incorporate this portion into the surrounding parcel, which is already owned by the City Recreation and Parks Department and is a part of a planned project. The Department of Public Service has agreed to transfer the right-of-way as described and shown within 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. This request went before the Land Review Commission on April 21, 2022. After review of the request, the Land Review Commission voted to recommend the above referenced right-of-way be transferred to the City of Columbus, Recreation and Parks Department at no cost to them.

2. FISCAL IMPACT:
There is no cost to the city to transfer the right-of-way.
