As requested, Staff has reviewed which parkland dedication requirements (fees) apply to this project. Though a Comprehensive Plan Amendment application for this property was submitted prior to the January 1, 2008 effective date of the current parkland dedication ordinance, our Legal Department has provided an opinion based on a review of state law and applicable case law that Comprehensive Plan Amendment applications (and Rezonings) do not "vest" a project. Therefore, the fees supplied from the Parks Departments, based on the current ordinance, are correct. Noted. 6.

The final plat will need to go to P&Z after the abandonment's have gone to and been approved by Council. Noted. 2.
