Sparks City Council Meeting 1/14/2019

Public Hearing and Action Items Unrelated to Planning and Zoning: 10.1

Title: Public Hearing, consideration, discussion and possible approval of the abandonment (AB-149) of a portion of public right-of-way abutting parcel 033-307-16 along 6th Street and C Street located at 248 6th Street as requested by RPS Enterprises.
Petitioner/Presenter: RPS Enterprises/Jon R. Ericson, P.E., PTOE – City Engineer
Recommendation: Staff recommends the Council approve the request of the right-of-way abandonment.
Financial Impact: None.
Business Impact (Per NRS 237):
    
A Business Impact Statement is not required because this is not a rule.
Agenda Item Brief:

Approving the request would provide additional area allowing for a larger developable lot. Staff finds that the public will not be materially injured by the proposed abandonments and recommends approval.



Background:

The proposed abandonment area being approximately 1,693 square feet of land, more or less, of the right of ways of 6th Street and C Street.  Approving the request would provide additional area allowing for a larger developable lot.



Analysis:

The legal descriptions (see attached) for the requested alleyway abandonment have been reviewed by staff and been found acceptable.  Each owner of property abutting the proposed abandonments have been properly notified via certified mail as required by NRS 278.480 (4) (a).  The extent of the proposed abandonment and the date of the public hearing were published in the Reno Gazette Journal as required by NRS 278.480 (4) (b).  Reservations of easement (per NRS278.480 (6)) are included where applicable.  Staff finds that the public will not be materially injured by the proposed abandonments and recommends approval.



Alternatives:
  1. The City Council could approve the request for abandonment as outlined by Staff.
  2. The City Council could deny the request for abandonment and provide direction to the City Manager.


Recommended Motion:

I move to approve the abandonment of a portion of public right-of-way abutting parcel 033-307-16 along 6th Street and C Street located at 248 6th Street as requested by RPS Enterprises.
