Explanation
1. Background
In 1977, pursuant to Ordinances 2009-77, the City of Columbus vacated a portion of right-of-way known as a north/south alley and a small portion of an east/west alley north of Price Avenue and west of High Street and reserved utility easements for existing utilities.

The Department of Public Service recently received a request from the current property owners, Greenhouse Short North, LLC., asking that the City release the reserved easements over this area to clear title for this site. After receipt of this request the Department of Public Service, Division of Infrastructure Management, verified with all the public and private utility companies that there are no public utilities or need for this easement located within the requested area and that they have no objections to this easement being released. The following legislation authorizes the Director of the Department of Public Service to execute those documents necessary to release the portions of easements as described below and attached exhibit to allow the area to clear title for this site.

2. Fiscal Impact
The City will receive a total of $500.00, to be deposited in Fund 7748, Project P537650, for granting the requested encroachment easements.
