BACKGROUND:

The Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport Authority (CAAA) is requesting the Board of Supervisors abandon the existing right-of-way for a portion of the old road alignment of Airport Road (Route 649). The section of Airport Road to be abandoned is located just south of the Airport Road-Dickerson Road roundabout. It is the old roadway bed for Airport Road and it has not been utilized for public access since the Summer of 2005, when the new alignment of Airport Road was opened for public use (Attachment A).

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Goal One: Enhance quality of life for all citizens.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

Abandonment of this section of existing right-of-way is considered appropriate because it is no longer needed for the public access now that the new alignment of Airport Road is completed and open to public use.  There is no other public road, public access, or other public use identified for this area that this existing right-of-way might serve.  Typically, unneeded rights-of-way revert to adjacent property owners, in this case the Airport Authority.  The Plat showing the right of way to be abandoned and added can be found on Attachment B.

 

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

There will be no budget impact.

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Staff recommends that the Board of Supervisors approve the attached resolution (Attachment C) abandoning the remaining right-of-way of the old alignment of Dickerson Road.
