AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

To:                     Honorable Mayor and Members of Town Council

 

Through:                     Bill Detweiler, Director, Development Services

Title:                     Ordinance Vacating a Portion of Second Street; and Providing for Its Emergency Adoption on First Reading

 

 

Executive Summary

 

Confluence Companies, the owner and developer of Riverwalk, is requesting a vacation of a small portion of Second Street to accommodate the expansion of an outdoor patio along the south property line of Riverwalk North.  The Second Street right-of-way on the west side of Wilcox Street does not include street improvements due to the gulch.  The Town trail is included within this right-of-way.  However, the trail is not located within this proposed vacation area and would remain in Town ownership.

 

Budget Impact

 

There will be no budget impact, as the Town does not receive compensation for vacating right-of-way.

 

Staff Recommendation

 

Staff finds that Confluence Companies has demonstrated that the proposed right-of-way vacation is necessary to accommodate certain improvements related to the Riverwalk development project. Staff recommends approval of the proposed right-of-way vacation.

 

Proposed Motion

 

I move to approve the Ordinance as introduced by title.
