AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   January 28, 2008

 

FROM:                       Bill Wiley, AICP, Interim Director of Community Development

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for vacating the drainage and utility easements between lots 31 and 32, of Crestridge at Leesburg subdivision plat

 

 

Staff Recommendation: 

The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the request for vacating the drainage and utility easements between lots 31 and 32 Crestridge at Leesburg subdivision plat. The area to be vacated is not currently used for public access or use and is currently undeveloped. It is not needed for future access and should be vacated to allow one single family home to be built on two lots.

           

Analysis:

The vacation of the drainage and utility easements is requested by Pillar Development, LLC, owners of the property. This property is generally located south of Old Tavares Road, and west of Sleepy Hollow Road. The property to be vacated is not currently used for public access and is not needed for future public access. Utility easements shall remain along the adjacent property lines for existing and/or required utility service(s) for this property.

 

By a vote of 7 to 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.

 

Options:        

1.         Approve the request to vacate the portions of the drainage and utility easements in the referenced subdivision.

2.         Other action the Commission may deem appropriate.

 

Fiscal Impact

No fiscal impact is anticipated as a result of the vacation of these subdivisions.
