PURPOSE:

To consider making a determination that a 0.175-acre section of Ohm Avenue 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 0.175-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 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 road 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.
