EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Meeting Date: 9/19/2011
AGENDA #2


Title of Agenda Item: Public Hearing: Closure of Dawson Place Right-of-Way.  

Council Goal: Champion Downtown

Background: The owner of the property at 333 West Rosemary Street requested that Council consider closing the Dawson Place right-of-way to allow for redevelopment of the property for retail, commercial, and residential use on the site. Closing the right-of-way would give the owner increased  flexibility to develop the property by allowing two parcels to be recombined into one parcel.  A new public easement is proposed at another location on the site to replace the access now provided by Dawson Place. 

Fiscal Note: Closing the right-of-way would provide a minor reduction in the Town's street maintenance costs, but would not have a significant impact on the budget.

Recommendations: That the Council receive public comment regarding the requested right-of-way closure.
