Agenda Item ##4084 - Ord. 15-032
Passed
Approve the Removal of a Portion of Todds Lane from the Official City Map

Synopsis: This Ordinance is being presented by the Administration for City Council’s review and approval. If approved, Council would be authorizing the removal of a portion of Todds Lane from the Official City Map. This request, approved by the City Planning Commission on July 28, 2015, was made by an adjacent property owner who uses the referenced section of road for his business interests. The City has determined that the section of Todds Lane in question is not owned by City, that the owner is not known and that the section of street does not contribute to the surrounding traffic pattern and therefore can be removed from the Official City Map.
