Title

Resolution to a Release Two Water Main Easements (Liber 1465, Page 861 and Liber 5178, Page 777) and Accept a New Water Main Easement at Maple Village Shopping Center from Brixmor Holdings 1 SPE, LLC (8 Votes Required)

Memorandum

The City holds two water main easements through the Maple Village Shopping Center, which were granted in 1974 and 2016 respectively. As part of the redevelopment of Maple Village, the City required some additional water main easement, primarily to accommodate increased fire hydrant coverage. Given the changes, it was deemed best to accept a new easement describing the entire water main easement for the property and release the two prior easements.

 

The new easement is in standard form and is conveyed without cost to the City. 

 

Release of the existing easements and acceptance of the new easement are recommended.
