RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the City Council:

DISCUSSION:

Dunaway Associates, on behalf of the City of Fort Worth, has requested vacation of this portion of Helmick Avenue and the alley to be replatted with the adjoining property for a new community center in the Como neighborhood.  The City Plan Commission recommended approval of this request at its meeting on June 27, 2018.  An acceptable final plat (FS-18-082) has been received in accordance with the Subdivision Ordinance.

The City of Fort Worth (City) originally obtained the above mentioned rights-of-way through plat dedication.  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 this right-of-way easement for the street and alley.

This project is located in COUNCIL DISTRICT 3.

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.  Any assets recorded on the City's financial statements associated with this land will be adjusted upon approval.
