City Council Regular
Meeting Date: 07/05/2017  
Subject:    Consider Resolution 17-72 Calling for Public Hearing to Vacate Public Roadway Easement
Submitted For: David Brodie From: Kim Reid, Administrative Legal Assistant

INTRODUCTION
The Council is asked to consider a resolution to set a public hearing on a public roadway easement vacation in the area of 555 127th Avenue NW.
DISCUSSION
This vacation is being considered in conjunction with a proposed driveway agreement with a resident as part of City reconstruction project 17-4.  This roadway easement is contained within platted Anoka County right-of-way (County Roadway A), and is the only access point for the property located at 555 127th Avenue NW.  No other properties have driveways that access said public roadway easement or right-of-way; all adjacent properties are addressed and accessed from 127th Lane NW.  The City is proposing, and the County and property owner are agreeable, to reconstructing a new driveway directly onto County Parkway A.  The proposed agreement is contingent upon successful vacation of this roadway easement.  City staff believes the vacation to be in the best interest of the residents of Coon Rapids as the City will no longer need to maintain a public roadway for the benefit of one property.

A vacation petition may be initiated by the City Council upon adoption of a resolution by 4/5 majority.  Resolution 17-72 calls for a public hearing on August 2, 2017 for Council to consider this vacation.  On that same date the property owner agreement will also be on the Council agenda for consideration, and both items will need to be approved.  If the roadway easement vacation is ultimately approved the underlying property would still be contained in Anoka County right of way.
RECOMMENDATION
Adopt Resolution 17-72, which calls for a public hearing on August 2, 2017 for a vacation of a public roadway easement.
