NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ENACTED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:

Section 1.                     That the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Street and Alley Centerline Layer for The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, as enacted by Ordinance No. 2020-555 be and hereby is amended as follows:

                      An Unnamed Right-of-Way and easement from Old Matthews Road northeastward to the dead end, between 2643 and 2647 Old Matthews Road, all of which is more particularly described by lines, words and figures on the sketch which is attached to and made a part of this ordinance as though copied herein, are hereby abandoned.

Agenda Analysis

Analysis

 

This ordinance abandons an Unnamed Right-of-Way and easement off Old Matthews Road. This abandonment has been requested by Vickie Vaughn. This right-of-way, including all utility easements, would be abandoned by this ordinance.

 

Future amendments to this ordinance may be approved by resolution. This ordinance has been approved by the Planning Commission.

 

Fiscal Note: This ordinance has no cost to Metro. In the opinion of the Nashville Department of Transportation and Multi-modal infrastructure (formerly the Department of Public Works), 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.
