ACTION: X INFORMATION:
The Route 20 North Sidewalk Project is funded through the Capital Improvement Program. To date, staff has procured design services and is prepared to engage a contractor to install approximately 2,600 linear feet of sidewalk along the east side of Route 20 North between Route 250 East and Fontana Drive later this winter.
Goal 3.1: Make the County a Safe and Healthy Community in which citizens feel secure to live, work and play.
Goal 3.3: Develop and implement policies that address the County’s growth and urbanization while continuing to enhance the factors that contribute to the quality of life in the County.
This project will allow Fontana/Wilton Farm area residents to safely walk along Route 20 North. In order to construct the 5-foot wide sidewalk, an eastward extension of the existing VDoT right-of way is needed. Specifically, road frontage along Tax Map 78, Parcels 58K (Dorrier) and 58G1 (Wynne) are impacted by the proposed design. Sidewalk installation on the west side of Route 20 was deemed impractical due to costly wetland relocation and roadway widening.
The County Real Estate Office determined the fair market value of the above-mentioned road frontage. After negotiations with the property owners, staff and the landowners agreed to the following amounts:
· Dorrier (TMP 78-58K) $13,354.72 for 8,786 sq. ft. or approximately 500 linear feet of road frontage.
· Wynne (TMP 78-58G1) $ 2,956.40 for 1,945 sq. ft. or approximately 100 linear feet of road frontage.
Staff recommends that the Board approve the purchase of the Wynne and Dorrier Road frontage parcels and authorize the County Executive to execute the Purchase Agreements and Deeds on the County’s behalf.
