In 1926 the City of Flagstaff acquired a perpetual water pipeline easement from Coconino County to serve the Town of Flagstaff, Document No. 324 Page 256. This pipeline crossed over and under land  that is now the Coconino Estates Subdivision.  In 1954 an additional easement was acquired, Document No. 105  Page 156,  and crossed over and under parcels located in the Antelope Valley Subdivision Units 1 and 2, and the Kaibab Plaza Subdivision Units 1, 2 and 3.   These water pipelines were vacated many years ago and are no longer in use, nor will they be needed in the future.  The City of Flagstaff Utilities Department has evaluated this request and has approved the abandonment of the easements.
Key Considerations:
By abandoning the vacated easement the private properties will be unencumbered from the easement restrictions, which may allow additional development and expansion on the private lots.
Community Benefits and Considerations:
Unencumbering private property enhances property values and the ability to further improve and develop a parcel.
