Title
Resolution to Approve Consent to Reciprocal Easement Agreement Regarding the Michigan Theater Property (8 Votes Required)
Memorandum
This resolution authorizes the City Attorney to record a consent from the City to a reciprocal easement agreement between the developers of the 616 E. Washington and 630 E. Washington Developments (Cerca Trova LLC and H & K Campus Properties LLC) and the Michigan Theater Foundation, Inc. This consent is necessary because the City holds a right of reverter with respect to the Michigan Theater property, which the City reserved when it quitclaimed the property to the Michigan Theater Foundation in 2007.

Because the Michigan Theater complex exists across several parcels, including parcels that will be part of the 616 E. Washington Development and the 630 E. Washington Development (formerly known as the 212 S.

Staff has reviewed the proposed easements that affect the Michigan Theater property and recommend execution of the consent, pending approval of the final reciprocal easement agreement language by the City Attorney's Office.
