(Virginia Code § 33.1-155)


WHEREAS, Sheet 3 of 4 of the plat entitled “Right-of-way and Drainage Easements to be Dedicated for Relocated State Routes 743 & 643 Across Lands of the Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport Authority, and Existing Right-of-Way to be Abandoned and Drainage Easements to be Vacated, and a New 30’ Access Easement, Rio and White Hall Magisterial Districts, Albemarle County, Virginia October 30, 2007, revised April 16, 2008” prepared by Kirk Hughes & Associates (the “Plat”) depicts segments of State Route 606 (Dickerson Road) to be abandoned near its new intersection with State Route 743; a copy of the Plat is attached hereto and incorporated herein by reference; and


            WHEREAS, the altered State Route 606 serves the same citizens as the prior State Route 606, with the only material change being the construction of the roundabout at the intersection of State Route 606 and State Route 743, and the segments to be abandoned therefore no longer serve a public need.


            NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of Supervisors abandons as part of the secondary system of state highways those segments of State Route 606 depicted on the Plat to be abandoned (without consideration to the Plat’s notes as to which parcels the abandoned right-of-way should be added) pursuant to Virginia Code § 33.1-155; and


            BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that a certified copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Resident Engineer for the Virginia Department of Transportation; and


            BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the any segment of the abandoned right-of-way that is owned by the County is hereby authorized for sale and conveyance for consideration or in exchange for other lands as provided in Virginia Code § 33.1-154, and the County Executive is hereby authorized to execute all deeds or other instruments on behalf of the County for such purposes, provided that they are approved as to form and content by the County Attorney; and 


            BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this Resolution shall serve as the Board of Supervisors’ Order of Abandonment as provided in Virginia Code § 33.1-163.1, shall be recorded in the records of the Clerk of the Circuit Court of the County of Albemarle, and shall be indexed by identifying the County of Albemarle, Virginia, as the grantor.
