Body

 

Information Contact: Stacy Grear

Phone Number: (404) 371-2257

 

PURPOSE:

To consider adopting a resolution to set a date and time for a public hearing related to potential abandonment of a 0.175 acre section of Ohm Avenue right of way that has ceased to be used by the public to the extent that no substantial public purpose is served by said right of way.

 

NEED/IMPACT:

State law requires that a public hearing be held on a potential abandonment of alley. 

The adjoining property owner has requested that 0.175 acre section of Ohm Avenue right of way be abandoned. The subject property is zoned “R-75” and valued at $64,100.00 by the Property Appraisal Department.  Sale of the property would return it to the tax roll.  The subject property is no longer needed for alley purposes by DeKalb County; no substantial public purpose is served by its continued existence.

The County Attorney’s Office has reviewed the attached resolution and has approved it as-to-form.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

There is no fiscal impact.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

Recommended Action

Adopt the attached resolution setting a date and time for a public hearing related to potential abandonment of a section of an unopened segment of Ohm Avenue right of way and authorize the Chief Executive Officer to execute all necessary documents.
