The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the request to vacate a portion of Indiana Street right-of-way approximately 30 by 250 feet in the City of Leesburg.
The vacation of this approximately .78 acre right-of-way is requested by the adjacent property owner. The area to be vacated is not currently used for public access, is not needed for future access and is undeveloped. The area to be vacated will be used for the purpose of developing an additional retention pond and employee parking for expansion of the existing Cutrale Citrus Juices facility. No properties are impacted by this request since the applicant owns all the surrounding property. Utility easements, as required by the City of Leesburg, shall be provided by the property owner to allow access to all existing and/or required utility service(s) for this property.
By a vote of 7 to 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
1. Approve the request to vacate the right-of-way.
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
No fiscal impact is anticipated as a result of the vacation of this right-of-way.
