ORDINANCE NO. BL2005-598
An ordinance abandoning certain right of way and a utility easement and consolidating certain areas shown on Map 93-2 into a single lot (Proposal No. 2005M-066U-09).
WHEREAS, as shown on the document attached and incorporated into this ordinance as Exhibit A, a portion of the area surrounding the Metropolitan Courthouse is shown as right-of-way (the "Public Square ROW") on the official street and alley map; and
WHEREAS, the Public
Square ROW was never formally abandoned but reconfigured prior to 1975 to serve
as parking and plaza areas for the Metropolitan Courthouse; and
WHEREAS, as shown on the document attached and incorporated into this ordinance as Exhibit B, between James Robertson Parkway and Union Street there is an unused utility easement (the "Utility Easement"), the abandonment of which will not affect any current utility uses; and
WHEREAS, abandonment of the Public Square ROW and Utility Easement and consolidation of the areas currently comprising the Public Square ROW and lots 56, 108, 186 and 187, Map 93-2, into a single lot will reconcile the public record with actual use of the property.
