Agenda Analysis

Analysis

 

This ordinance abandons a portion of Alley #2004 from Baptist World Center Drive northeastward to Alley #2003. The abandonment has been requested by Jenner Design, LLC. Metro Public Works has determined there is no future need for this alley right-of-way for Metro purposes. This ordinance also abandons the utility easements within the alley.

 

Future amendments to this ordinance may be approved by resolution.

 

This abandonment has been approved by the Planning Commission and the Traffic and Parking Commission.

 

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.
