COUNCIL ACTION
Business Meeting:    01/18/2022
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 three (3) vacant lots identified as Parcel #s 20600, 20617, and 22262 on Stokes Street. 
BACKGROUND
The City is interested in improving the visible streetscape along Berryman Avenue, 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 desired parcels fronting on Stokes Street near its intersection with Berryman Avenue. These Parcels are subject to a total of thirty-seven (37) nuisance abatement liens held by the City, totaling approximately $13,560.00, a delinquency that exceeds the assessed value of the land. The owner is willing to convey the property to the City in exchange for the satisfaction and release of the existing liens and delinquencies owed against the lots.
RECOMMENDATION
City staff recommends proceeding with acquiring Parcel #s 20600, 20617, and 22262 on Stokes Street in exchange for the satisfaction and release of the existing liens and delinquencies to assist with the streetscape improvements.
