00071691CITY OF COLLEGE STATION DEVELOPMENT SERVICES 1101 Texas Avenue South, PO Box 9960 College Station, Texas 77842 Phone (979) 764-3570 / Fax (979) 764-3496 MEMORANDUM February 1, 2002 TO: Bob Mosley, City Engineer FROM: Bridgette George, Assistant Development Manager . SUBJECT: Alley Abandonment - 500 Fairview Avenue Attached is Scott McDermott's request to abandon the alley behind his property at 500 Fairview Avenue. The Procedure for Abandonment of A Public Right-of-Way/Easement application states that the applicant is required to attain the names and addresses of property owners who have not consented to the vacation and abandonment, including property owners of land within 1,000 feet of either end of the proposed abandonment area. Mr. McDermott has not contacted those residents per his conversation with Mark Smith, who indicated that would not be necessary for this abandonment. I have tentatively scheduled this project for the February 28, City Council meeting. Please let me know at your earliest convenience if this project will need to be scheduled for a later Council meeting and I will change that on our tracking sheet. I have also informed Mr. McDermott about the tentative date and would like to notify him if that date changes. There is one condition we would like to make upon approval of this abandonment: the dedication of a 15' PUE for an existing overhead utility line (see attached drawing). Mr. McDermott has submitted the necessary documents for this dedication and has asked for this condition. Please let me know if you foresee any problems with this request. Thank you! cc: Natalie Ruiz, Development Manager File # 01-239 Home of Texas A&M University LBridgette George - Re: Sewer line easement From: Bob Mosley To: Bridgette George Date: 2/26/02 2:01 PM Subject: Re: Sewer line easement Page 1 My thoughts would be for a 20 foot easement or any additional width necessary to encompass the existing sewer line to past the edge of the electric utility poles. Tony did say that the electric poles did not have cross bars so the additional 5 foot outside of the poles are not necessary. The easement must be extended to the far side of the alley that is to be abandoned. If he wants to meet to discuss, I suggest scheduling a meeting with the parties included in this e-mail. Bridgette George 02/26/02 01:50PM Who does Scott McDermott need to talk to regarding the sewer line on his property and exactly where that easement can be? He was told in the field that it could just cover that sewer line and extend 15' beyond it on the other side to include the electrical line. I want to make sure he, and I, are clear about the exact location before we proceed with the abandonment. Bridgette George Asst.

Based upon the new easement for electrical that was submitted, the easement is shifted to the west side of Lot 9 and the poles would be on the east side of that easement (opposite of that in the remaining alley), however, based upon a manhole on the south side of Fidelity, it does not appear that the new easement would incorporate the sewer line which appears to continue down the alley to the east of the power poles. If the sewer easement stays in effect, it does not make any sense for the electrical easement to have that offset or to have two separate easements. The issue still remains about how to bridge the planned abandoned alley with an easement as it the proposed easement terminates at the south side of the current alley. Bridgette George 02/11/02 09:09AM Good morning! I spoke with Scott McDermott this morning and he said that he has already spoken with Mark Smith about the existing sewer line and that Mark said he wouldn't have a problem extending/rebuilding his garage over it (in place of the existing garage). Can you please get with Mark on that and let me know where we stand on this. Thanks! Bridgette George Asst. Development Manager City of College Station (979) 764-3570 www.ci.college-station.tx.us CC: Mark Smith; Tony Michalsky Bridgette George - alley abandonment From: Bob Mosley To: Bridgette George Date: 3/13/02 9:31AM Subject: alley abandonment Page 1 Bridgette, Do you know if anything has happened related to the dedication of the public utility easement either by plat or by separate easement agreement? The response from Jan on 2/28/02 indicated Legal wanted the easement and also wanted me to revise the proposed ordinance to be in a different format. The sample that she sent was specifically applicable to the abandonment of an easement and not a right-of-way which would have the property revert to adjacent multiple property owners. I have not tried to make modification yet and am waiting on a resolution to the easement dedication issue. Please let me know the status. CC: Jan Schwartz L_Bridgette George - Re: alley abandonment From: Bob Mosley To: Jan Schwartz Date: 2/28/02 9:52AM Subject: Re: alley abandonment Page 1 The metes & bounds are included in exhibit "A" sent by interoffice mail. As far as the easement agreement, Development Services expressed a desire to list the easement as a condition but the actually receive the easement by a later replat. I told them I would see if Legal was acceptable (included in the draft ordinance previously submitted). If not, I assume this is on hold until the plat or separate easement metes & bounds are submitted. Jan Schwartz 02/28/02 09:04AM Bob, the ordinance you attached is not in the proper format for an abandonment. I have attached the a copy of the ordinance format you should have use. Also, legal needs to have time to review the application and to prepare the utility easement. Do you have the metes and bounds description for the utility easement? Please send me a copy of the application, a diagram of the area to be abandoned along with the metes and bounds description, the metes and bounds description and diagram of the proposed easement area, and the ordinance retyped in the proper format. In order to give Legal time to review the documents and prepare the easement, please reschedule this for the second Council meeting in March. Bob Mosley 02/27/2002 4:29:25 PM Jan, I have placed a draft ordinance in the Legal Review folder for an alley abandonment application for 3/14/02. Attached is the cover sheet for that item. I am sending by Interoffice Mail a copy of Exhibit "A" to include metes and bounds and graphics. Please let me know if anything else is needed.
