SUBJECT:  

Adopt Ordinance Vacating a Portion of East Daggett Avenue Between the Railroad and South Freeway and a Portion of South Freeway (Formerly Maryland Avenue) Between Vickery Boulevard and Broadway Avenue to be Replatted with the Adjoining Property for Future Parking for the Existing Industrial Development (COUNCIL DISTRICT 8)


RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended by the City Plan Commission that the City Council:

1.  Adopt the attached ordinance vacating a portion of East Daggett Avenue between the railroad and South Freeway and a portion of South Freeway (formerly Maryland Avenue) between Vickery Boulevard and Broadway Avenue to be replatted with the adjoining property for future parking for the existing industrial development; and

2.  Waive any and all purchase fee value of the vacated land in accordance with City policy.

 
DISCUSSION:

Pacheco Koch, Inc., on behalf of Susan and Richard Miller, has requested the vacation of this portion of East Daggett Avenue and this portion of South Freeway (formerly Maryland Avenue) to provide additional parking for the existing industrial development.  The City Plan Commission recommended approval of this request at its meeting on June 28, 2017.  An acceptable final plat (FS-17-159) has been received in accordance with the Subdivision Ordinance. The portion of Maryland Avenue was renamed South Freeway per Ordinance number 15296 but is still City right-of-way.

The City of Fort Worth (City) originally obtained the above mentioned rights-of-way through platting process. The City does not own any fee interest in the rights-of-way or own any property adjacent to the rights-of-way and did not expend any City funds to purchase the right-of-way easements.  In accordance with the City's policy regarding street and alley vacation transactions approved by the City Council on March 6, 2007, Mayor and Council Communication (M&C G-15624), Staff recommends waiving the fair market value or any portion thereof of purchase price of the right-of-way easements for the streets.

This project is located in COUNCIL DISTRICT 8.

This M&C does not request approval of a contract with a business entity.


 
FISCAL INFORMATION/CERTIFICATION:

The Director of Finance certifies that approval of these recommendations will have no material effect on City funds.
