Title

Public Hearing: Application #PL2020-271 - Vacation of Right-of-way - Two segments of NE Douglas St generally located south of 2305 NE Douglas St; City of Lee's Summit, applicant

 

Body

Issue/Request:

The City proposes to vacate portions of NE Douglas St right-of-way rendered unnecessary since completion of a capital improvement project in 2016 that relocated and realigned the intersection of NE Douglas St with NE Lee’s Summit Rd.  The vacated right-of-way will revert to private property and will be absorbed by the abutting parcels.  Public water, sanitary sewer and storm water lines exist within the subject right-of-way.  The water line and sanitary sewer line will remain public infrastructure and require the retention of a public easement to cover said infrastructure.  The storm sewer line will revert to private infrastructure to be owned and maintained by the new property owner.

Josh Johnson, AICP, Assistant Director of Plan Services
