Whereas, Piedmont Natural Gas (“PNG”) owns four parcels of property as shown in Exhibit A to this ordinance (the “PNG Properties”); and,
Whereas, the Metropolitan Government owns 24 parcels of property also as shown in Exhibit A (the “Metro Properties”); and,
Whereas, each of the Metro Properties are flood-prone and were obtained and cleared of structures by the Metropolitan Government in order to mitigate area flood risks; and,
Whereas, the PNG Properties are adjacent to the Metro Properties and are also flood-prone; and,
Whereas, PNG seeks to install underground gas lines and other equipment (the “Project”) across both the PNG Properties and the Metro Properties; and,
Whereas, PNG has requested permanent, 50-foot utility easements, as further described in Exhibit B, across the Metro Properties for the Project; and,
Whereas, in exchange for the permanent easements, PNG proposes to donate the PNG Properties to Metro while retaining 50-foot easements thereon for the Project; and,
Whereas, the Metro Properties and the PNG Properties are of approximate equal value as shown in Exhibit C; and,
WHEREAS, acceptance of the proposed donations and conveyance of the requested easements is in the best interest of the Metropolitan Government.
