1. Background:
The City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, received a request from David Ruma of DC Building Company, requester and agent for Prospect Wango, LLC, to sell a 0.148 acre portion (6,446 sq. ft.) of the Old Ackerman Road right-of-way. This portion of right-of-way is running east / west directionally, and is adjacent at the south of the property, 2855-2945 Olentangy River Rd. A.k.a. 010-103163. The portion is approximately 300 feet east to west and 35 feet north to south.

Sale of this right-of-way is for a dog park that will serve the residents in the new adjacent building. There is a possibility that a small portion will be used for parking, also to serve the neighboring residents in the adjacent building. The Department of Public Service has agreed to sell 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. 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 $3,223.00 was established. 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 Prospect Wango, LLC at the cost of $3,223.00.

The City will receive a total of $3,223.00 and the funds are to be deposited in Fund 7748, Project P537650, as consideration for the transfer of the requested right-of-way.
