Information Contact: Stacy Grear

Phone Number: (404) 371-2257

 

PURPOSE:

To consider making a determination that a 0.117-acre section of Ford Place right of way 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:

The adjoining property owner has requested that a 0.117-acre section of Ford Place right of way be abandoned. The subject property is zoned “R-75” and valued at $6,500 by the Property Appraisal Department.  Sale of the property would return it to the tax roll. The Planning & Sustainability Department has recommended abandonment of the right of way segment, pursuant to the provisions of the DeKalb County Organization Act, Article VI, Sec. 2-181(b)(1). 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 declaring the subject property abandoned and authorize the Chief Executive Officer to execute all necessary documents.
