Agenda Analysis

Analysis

 

This ordinance abandons Alley #922 from Wedgewood Ave northward to Blakemore Ave, between 21st Ave S and Alley #821. The abandonment has been requested by S & ME, Inc. Metro Public Works has determined there is no future need for this alley right-of-way for Metro purposes. Metro would retain all utility easements.

 

Future amendments to this ordinance may be approved by resolution.

 

Fiscal Note: This ordinance has no cost to Metro. In the opinion of the Public Works department, abandoned right-of-way has no market value when the Department has agreed that the abandoning of said right-of-way is considered acceptable. Additionally, the abandonment of rights-of-way that are unimproved, unmaintained, and serve no current or future purpose for Metro allows the abandoned area to be assessed for property tax purposes.
