AGENDA BILL 09-10-26F
Step-one Street Vacation - Vacate portion of Leonard Street Right of Way (ROW)
October 26, 2009
Land Use Case Number:
Staff Report to City Manager
Helen Pevzner, Larry Dewey and Susan Scarino (owners of property adjacent to ROW)
ROW will become taxable land
No significant impact
Policy Questions for Council Consideration:
Does the City have any use for the ROW?
Undeveloped Leonard Street ROW is proposed to be vacated between Exeter and Grant Streets (see map in attachment 1 on page 3)
Applicants have the support of 75.9% of the affected properties (66.6% required)
City sewer line in ROW would be protected by easement.
The terrain is too steep for a street.
City Council will decide whether or not to hold a public hearing prior to taking action on the request to vacate ROW
Staff recommends that City Council pass a motion to hold a public hearing on November 23, 2009 to consider this street vacation at a City Council meeting date.
