Staff recommends approval of the ordinance accepting the Quit Claim Deed from the State of Florida, Department of Transportation, Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise, for property at the CR470/Turnpike interchange.
The Florida Department of Transportation, Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise, has been working with Lake County and the City of Leesburg to transfer right-of-way at the 470/Turnpike interchange to these jurisdictions. The City has requested right-of-way in the northeast and southwest quadrants for the purpose of widening CR 470.
It is possible that the County will need a portion of the parcel in the northeast quadrant that the City is receiving for road widening. Since the CR 470 plans were not mature enough to determine their exact needs, the State has left that issue to negotiation between the City and the County.
The parcels were deeded to the City via two separate Quit Claim Deeds. The first deed was accepted by Ordinance on February 12, 2007. Acceptance of this Quit Claim Deed will complete this transaction.
1. Approve the ordinance accepting the Quit Claim Deed from Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
There is no fiscal impact as a result of this right-of-way transfer beyond general maintenance.
