Background/Alt Actions

BACKGROUND

 

The sanitary sewer easement to be vacated was originally dedicated to the City of Santa Clarita (City) on Parcel Map No. 19163, which was filed in Book 281, pages 7-10, on April 21, 1998. The easement being vacated is not necessary, as the sanitary sewer was constructed within the public right-of-way of Newhall Ranch Road fronting the property.

 

Per Section 8333 of the Streets and Highways Code, the legislative body of a local agency may summarily vacate a public service easement in any of the following cases:

 

1.              The easement has not been used for the purpose for which it was dedicated or acquired for five consecutive years immediately preceding the proposed vacation.

 

2.              The date of dedication or acquisition is less than five years, and more than one year, immediately preceding the proposed vacation, and the easement was not used continuously since that date.

 

3.              The easement has been superseded by relocation, or determined to be excess by the easement holder, and there are no other public facilities located within the easement.

 

Staff has determined the easement to be excess and therefore is recommending the easement to be summarily vacated by adopting the resolution.

 

ALTERNATIVE ACTION

 

Other action as determined by the City Council.
