TITLE
Recommendation to receive supporting documentation into the record, conclude the public hearing, find that the area to be vacated is not needed for present or prospective public use; and adopt resolution ordering the vacation of a portion of the public right-of-way on the south side of Columbia Street west of Long Beach Boulevard.  (District 6)
 
DISCUSSION
In order to expand their business and better serve their customers, the applicant, Cabe Toyota, requests that the alley be vacated.  The area to be vacated is shown on the attached site map.  Consistent with California land reversion practices, the vacated portion of Columbia Street will revert back to the original property owner.  An easement is being reserved.  No buildings may be constructed within the easement area.
 
On October 22, 2013, the City Council adopted Resolution No. RES-13-0098, declaring its intention to vacate the subject right-of-way, and set November 19, 2013, as the date for the public hearing.  
 
This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Linda Vu on October 31, 2013 and by Budget Management Officer Victoria Bell on November 1, 2013.
 
TIMING CONSIDERATIONS
The date of this public hearing was set by City Council action.
 
FISCAL IMPACT
Both the Tentative Fee in the amount of $7,440 and the Final Fee in the amount of $7,440 have been paid by the petitioner and deposited in the General Fund (GP) in the Department of Public Works (PW).  Approval of this vacation could potentially have a positive impact on the job market.
