Title
Resolution to Vacate a 120-Foot Length and a 30-Foot Length of Unimproved, Platted Seybold Drive, Scioto Hills No. 1 Subdivision (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 7 Yeas, 0 Nays) (8 Votes Required)
Memorandum
Approval of this resolution will vacate two portions of unimproved, platted public right-of-way within the Ann Arbor Housing Commission's North Maple Estates housing development, which is owned by the City. Upon vacation, ownership of the vacated parcels will revert entirely to the City, which will "fill in" the North Maple Estates site and allow the Ann Arbor Housing Commission to better redevelop the site as a whole parcel.

The Ann Arbor Housing Commission has submitted a proposed site plan to redevelop the North Maple Estates site that reflects this vacation. Approval of that site plan is dependent upon this vacation.

A 330-foot length of Seybold Drive was vacated in 1969 as part of the original Housing Commission development on this site. The two additional lengths, extending the previous vacation by 120 feet to the north and 30 feet to the south, will square off the northern and southern borders of the site. These lengths of unimproved, platted right-of-way do not serve any privately owned lots or contain any public utilities serving any other lots.

The City Planning Commission held a public hearing regarding the vacation at its meeting of June 17, 2014 and heard no objections or concerns. The City Planning Commission recommends approval of the requested vacation.
