Amending Ordinance No. 900446 by clarifying that the portion of Grand Avenue lying north of 27th Street from Main Street to a point 500 feet north of the centerline of 26th Street designated for vacation in the previously passed Ordinance No. 65097 shall not be included as part of the park and boulevard system; directing the Director of Finance not to reassign to the Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners any property interest in that portion of Grand Avenue; and recognizing an emergency.

WHEREAS, the City Council on January 25, 1990, duly enacted Ordinance No. 65097 providing for the vacation of Grand Avenue lying north of 27th Street from Main Street to a point 500 feet north of the centerline of 26th Street and portions of Main Street, 26th Street and Walnut Street, all in that same general vicinity, for the purpose of the re-alignment of Grand Avenue, with said vacation to become effective on the date the Director of Public Works certifies that the improvements to re-aligned Grand Avenue have been completed and accepted; and

WHEREAS, the City Council herein desires to clarify that by its action of September 27, 1990, through Ordinance No. 900446 it did not intend to include as park and boulevard property the portion of Grand Avenue previously designated for vacation as described in the earlier enacted Ordinance No. 65097 even though the improvements to re-aligned Grand Avenue then under construction had not yet been completed and accepted by the Director of Public Works; and

 

WHEREAS, the Grand/Main Corridor Plan as adopted by the City Plan Commission on March 1, 1988, and which is referred to in Ordinance No. 900446, did not contemplate or propose that the portion of Grand Avenue planned for vacation by Ordinance No. 65097 be included as a part of the park and boulevard system; NOW, THEREFORE,
