ACTION: X INFORMATION:
The Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport Authority (CAAA) is requesting that the Board of Supervisors abandon the existing right-of-way (and associated drainage easements) for the old road alignment of Dickerson Road (Route 606). The old Dickerson Road right-of-way to be abandoned is located at the end of the airport runway (Attachment A) and has not been utilized for public access since the new alignment of the Dickerson Road was completed and opened to public use in the Summer of 2004. The completed road relocation project was identified as an improvement in the Airport’s Master Plan and required to meet Federal Aviation Administration runway safety requirements.
Goal One: Enhance quality of life for all citizens.
Abandonment of the old section of Dickerson Road is considered appropriate because it is no longer needed for the public access now that the new alignment of Dickerson road is now completed and open for 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.
There will be no budget impact.
Staff recommends that the Board of Supervisors approve the attached resolution (Attachment C) abandoning the right-of-way for the old alignment of Dickerson Road (Route 606).
