BACKGROUND:

The County has been actively pursuing the completion of public improvements along Powell Creek Drive between the Hollymead and Forest Lakes communities.  These improvements consisted of a roundabout at the Powell Creek Drive/Shadybrook Trail intersection and the construction of a sidewalk across the front of two large parcels on the east side of Powell Creek Drive.  The roundabout and a portion of the sidewalk have been constructed.  The remaining portion of  the sidewalk will provide a pedestrian link between the Hollymead school complex and the Forest Lakes community.  Completion of this part of the sidewalk requires additional right of way, which the property owner has agreed to provide.

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Goal 3 Enhance the Quality of Life for all Citizens

 

 

DISCUSSION:

The plat and quitclaim deed and agreement dedicating the last portion of right-of-way, which is needed to complete the sidewalk, have been signed by the owner and all the preparations for recordation have been completed.  The final step is to have the County Executive sign the quitclaim deed and agreement.  This signature requires authorization from the Board of Supervisors.  

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Staff recommends that the Board accept the proposed dedication and authorize the County Executive to sign the quitclaim deed and agreement on behalf of the County.
