A Business Impact Statement is not required because this is not a rule.
Background: The width of “D” Street right of way is 60 feet. Northern Nevada Community Housing Resource, as the adjacent property owner of the property located at 2555 “D” Street, has requested the abandonment of 785 square feet of “D” Street adjacent to his existing property. The property requested for abandonment is all located behind the curb line and the sidewalk. Northern Nevada Community Housing has also requested the abandonment 969 feet of alley adjacent to the west of his property, and the abandonment of 5,418 square feet of a second alley to the South and East of their property.
Staff recommends the Council approve the abandonment request from Northern Nevada Community Housing to vacate approximately 785 square feet of the portion of “D” Street, as described in the attached Exhibit “A” and as depicted in the attached Exhibit “B”. Staff further recommends the Council approve the abandonment of the 969 square foot of the alley to the West of their property, and the 785 square feet of the alley to the South and East of their property. As both alleys are described in the attached Exhibits “A” and depicted in the attached Exhibits “B”. The abandonments of the road right of way and the two (2) alleys will facilitate the reconstruction and landscaping of the property for low income housing, as well as returning approximately 7272 square feet to the tax rolls.
Alternatives: 1. The City Council could approve the abandonments as outlined by staff. 2. The City Council could reject the abandonments and provide direction to the city manager. 3. The City Council could direct the City Manager to provide alternatives to this proposal
Recommended Motion: I move to approve the vacations of a portion of “D” Street and the two alleys as outlined by Staff.
