The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the request for vacating a portion of Leesburg Landing right-of-way (.68 +/- acre) for an unused right of way in the development. The area to be vacated is currently developed by Leesburg Landings for resident use. A reservation for a public utilities easement will be retained. The vacation is needed to clear a title issue on the property.
This item is presented again for consideration because of an error in the ordinance title. The vacation of the right-of-way is requested by the Leesburg Landing Community. This property is generally located west of Thomas Avenue, at Landing Drive, McHale Drive, and Fountain Drive. The City reserves any and all existing recorded easements for utilities.
By a vote of 7 to 0, the Planning Commission on October 21, 2010 recommended approval.
1. Approve the request to vacate the right-of-way for Leesburg Landing.
2. Other action the Commission may deem appropriate.
No fiscal impact is anticipated as a result of the vacation of this right-of-way.
