AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE: July 14, 2008

 

FROM: Bill Wiley, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT: Ordinance accepting an easement in Crestridge subdivision from William and Patricia L. Beers

 

 

Staff Recommendation

The Planning staff recommends approval of the ordinance accepting a drainage easement along the westerly 10 feet of lot 32 in the Crestridge subdivision from William and Patricia L. Beers.

 

Analysis

The property owner purchased lots 31 and 32 in Crestridge subdivision with the intent of constructing one single family home, to be located on both lots. The existing Crestridge plat calls for a five (5) foot easement along each side of the property line between lots 31 and 32, which was vacated under Ordinance 08-47 on May 12, 2008. The subject easement, along the westerly 10 feet of lot 32, will provide proper access and drainage as previously required, but in a location which allows the property owner to complete construction of the single family home.

 

Options:

1. Approve the ordinance accepting the easement.

2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.

 

Fiscal Impact:

None.
