SUMMARY
The City is interested in improving the streetscape along parts of the boundary of the Monument-Berryman Redevelopment area. In order to complete this as planned, the City must acquire ownership of a vacant lot identified as Parcel # 20792. 
BACKGROUND
The City is interested in improving the visible streetscape across from the Greenhill Cemetery and National Cemetery on Lee Street, near the eastern boundary of the Monument-Berryman Redevelopment area. City Council designated the Monument-Berryman Redevelopment area to prioritize targeted improvements to encourage growth around the River District and Old West End. In furtherance of this plan, the City is able to acquire ownership of a desired parcel fronting on Lee Street near its intersection with Berryman Avenue.  The parcel is currently owned by Mr. Terrence Fletchman, who is willing to convey the property in exchange for the satisfaction and release of $30,912.45 in liens the City holds against the lot.
RECOMMENDATION
Staff recommends proceeding with acquiring the parcel on Lee Street owned by Mr. Fletchman in exchange for the satisfaction and release of the existing liens attached to the land to assist with the streetscape improvements.
