BACKGROUND:

The Albemarle County Service Authority (“ACSA”) is planning to replace the existing 6-inch water line within the County-owned Clarke Lane right-of-way (Carrsbrook Subdivision) with an 8-inch line.  As this project has progressed, ACSA discovered that it did not have an easement for the existing water line and, as part of this project, desires to acquire an easement.  This water line provides a connection between the Woodbrook and Carrsbrook Subdivisions and, if there is a break in the water line along Route 29 North, it is the only source of water for the Woodbrook Subdivision.

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Goal 3: Develop Policies and Infrastructure to Address the County’s Growing Needs.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

Virginia Code Section 15.2-1800 requires that the Board hold a public hearing prior to conveyance of any interest in County-owned real property.  Staff has reviewed and approved the proposed Deed and Plat, attached.  The proposed water line easement would allow ACSA to proceed with its water line replacement project.

 

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

None.

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Staff recommends that, after receiving public comment, the Board approve the proposed easement and authorize the County Executive to sign the deed of easement on behalf of the County after the agreement has been approved by the County Attorney with any necessary changes.
