Subject:    Continue Public Hearing to Vacate Public Roadway, Utility and Sanitary Sewer Easements
Submitted For: David Brodie From: Kim Reid, Administrative Legal Assistant

INTRODUCTION
On October 15, 2019, Council adopted resolutions requesting a public hearing for public roadway, utility and sanitary sewer easement vacations for the Port Riverwalk area and set a public hearing on the vacations for November 19, 2019.  Due to Xcel Energy's objections to the vacations, staff is asking the public hearing be continued until December 17, 2019.
DISCUSSION
The HRA currently has a purchase agreement with Centra Homes to develop the HRA owned Port Riverwalk site on the south side of Coon Rapids Boulevard near Avocet Street with 136 detached townhomes.  On October 15, 2019, Council adopted resolutions 19-104, 19-105, 19-106, 19-107, 19-108 and 19-109 requesting a public hearing for public roadway, utility and sanitary sewer easement vacations and set a public hearing for November 19, 2019.  City staff requested Council to open and continue the public hearing to consider these vacations to December 3, 2019.  The delay in Council consideration of the easement vacations is necessitated by Xcel Energy's objections to the vacations.  City staff has not reached an agreement and continues to work with Xcel Energy.  Additional time is needed to comple the negotiations.  Staff is requesting the public hearing for the vacations be continued to December 17, 2019.
RECOMMENDATION
Due to needing additional time to enter into an agreement with Xcel Energy regarding the vacations, Council is asked to keep open the public hearing to consider the public roadway, utility and sanitary sewer easements and continue said public hearing to December 17, 2019.
