Stacy Saltzburg, City Clerk
Consideration and Adoption of Resolution No. 2023-23:
A resolution of the Flagstaff City Council finding that taking of property interests is necessary for the Milton Road and University Avenue Right-of-Way Project, a public use, and establishing an effective date.
STAFF RECOMMENDED ACTION:
1) Read Resolution No. 2023-23 by title only
2) City Clerk reads Resolution No. 2023-23 by title only (if approved above)
3) Adopt Resolution No. 2023-23
The City Council has already approved Ordinance No. 2022-24 and 2023-10 authorizing acquisition of property interests for the Milton Road and University Avenue Right-of-Way Project. However, per advice of outside legal counsel for condemnations, the City Council should make a finding that taking is necessary for a public use. This resolution will accomplish this.
The City has already offered to pay just compensation for necessary property interests based on appraised value. However, the City was not able to timely reach agreements with all property owners for purchase. Project construction started in May 2023. Absent 11th hour agreement(s) for purchase, the City will be filing a condemnation proceedings in order to obtain immediate possession of property interests listed in the resolution so that construction may proceed. If no agreements are reached after filing, the court will determine the just compensation to be paid.
Staff has provided information at the December 6, 2022 and April 4, 2023 City Council Meetings related to the property acquisitions for this Project and the financial impact.
