Body

 

Strategic Plan:

Deliver First Class Services to the Public and Our Customers
5.2 Be responsible stewards of the public’s resources
5.3 Ensure effective and efficient delivery of county services and support

 

Summary:

The purpose of the request is to vacate an 835 square foot portion of platted and unopened right-of-way.  The petitioners are seeking to keep their fence in its existing location and to increase the size of their lot.

 

Background Information:

The petitioners originally requested the release of a larger area, however, the Public Works Department has infrastructure in the area and required the petitioners submit a revised sketch showing a reduction in the amount of right-of-way requested due to potential conflicts with the existing infrastructure (stormwater pipe and underdrain).

County departments were queried and have no objection to the vacation request.   

Letters of no objection were received from Bright House, Duke Energy, Frontier, Pinellas County Utilities Engineering, TECO Electric, TECO Gas and WOW! The petition was properly advertised in accordance with Florida State Statute 336.

Pursuant to the Real Property Division Procedures, notice was mailed by the Clerk of the Court to property owners within two hundred feet of the subject property and two yards signs were placed on the property. The Deputy Clerk will report to the Board any citizen support or opposition.

 

Fiscal Impact:

$750.00 has been received for this request.
