COMMUNICATION - Notice from the City Clerk to the Mayor and Council regarding a termination of security agreement.


RECEIVED AND FILED

110778
Vacating Railroad Street between Belleview Avenue and Madison Avenue, Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri; retaining a utility easement; and directing the City Clerk to record certain documents. (1636-V)


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
City Planning and Development addressed the Committee. The purpose of these vacations is to allow consolidation of properties for more efficient development. The area enclosed by the rights of way is being developed as the Freedom Mall Historical Interpretive Area, honoring among other things the Underground Railroad, with several statues at the west end and a parking lot to the east. The original request for the vacation of W 8th Street, as noted above, included its entirety from Belleview Avenue east approximately 425 feet to Madison Avenue. Following the application, Faultless Starch requested that approximately the westerly 350 feet remain public on an interim basis. Staff will support that concept, subject to provision of a public turnaround easement to address the dead-end nature of the remaining right of way. The easement could be vacated simultaneously with the vacation of the remainder of W 8th Street if and when that occurs. (An ingress-egress easement for the Interpretive Area has been granted to the City already, however it has a duration of only 25 years.)
Ayes: 5 - Ford, Glover, Taylor, Wagner, Circo

RESOLUTION - Amending the 2011 One Year Action Plan and authorizing submission of a Substantial Amendment to the U.S. Department Housing and Urban Development for its consideration in order to reprogram grant funding.


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "BE ADOPTED"
City Planning and Development addressed the Committee. The Black Economic Union has requested that a portion of the funding now included in the 2011 Action Plan for rehabilitation activities at the Lincoln Building be transferred to renovation activities at their Heritage Business Park II, 1900 Vine. This resolution approves a substantial amendment to the City's One Year Action Plan in order to reallocate this funding because it is a new activity. The improvements to the office building are expected to allow for significantly increased tenancy resulting in the creation of 3-5 new jobs for low- and moderate-income persons.
