Subject:    Release of Unused Utility Easement located on 1100 W. Main Street
From: W. Clarke Whitfield, Jr.

COUNCIL ACTION
Business Meeting:  01/18/2022
SUMMARY
City Staff is seeking approval to release an unused utility easement affecting the property at 1100 W. Main Street, to help facilitate a planned casino resort on the Property. 
 
BACKGROUND
The City holds an easement to locate underground water main facilities upon a property in the City of Danville identified as Parcel #51530, 1100 W. Main Street where a casino is planned. The easement was initially reserved by Danville Utilities prior to the sale of the Parcel by the Industrial Development Authority to Caesars Virginia for the purpose of constructing underground water main facilities that were believed to be needed as part of a project to renovate an adjacent reservoir into a raw water storage facility. After further planning, Danville Utilities has found a more suitable area to locate underground water main facilities outside the boundary of the Parcel. City Staff has determined that the City has no current or future need for the easement, and it appears to be surplus to the needs of the City. City Staff wishes to vacate the easements to assist with the anticipated development upon the affected Parcel. 
RECOMMENDATION
City staff recommends proceeding with vacating the surplus easements to enable the development of the Property.
