Title

Approving the petition of VC South Mall LLC to vacate a portion of the alley abutting Lots 12, 13, and 14, Block 17, Summit Park Addition to Saint Paul, Ramsey County, Minnesota. (Public hearing held June 19)

                     

Body

WHEREAS,  VC South Mall LLC ("Petitioner") has petitioned to vacate a portion of the alley abutting Lots 12, 13 and 14, Block 17, Summit Park Addition to Saint Paul; and

 

WHEREAS, the City of Saint Paul Department of Planning and Economic Development, citing Legislative Code 69.502, recommends denial of the vacation petition because the vacation would create a less than minimal alley design; so, therefore

 

BE IT RESOLVED, in accordance with Chapter 130 of the Saint Paul Legislative Code, that upon the petition of the Petitioner, as documented in Office of Financial Services’ Vacation File Number 03-2019, the public property described and depicted in Exhibit “A” is hereby to be vacated and discontinued as public property and, subject to the following conditions, the utility easements within said public property are hereby released in accordance with Section 130.05(3):

 

1.                     An easement shall be retained over, under and across the proposed vacated alley on behalf of Qwest Corporation d/b/a CenturyLink QC for existing facilities.  If relocation of the facilities is required by the Petitioner for or arising from this vacation, the Petitioner, its successors and assigns, shall assume all costs of relocation of said facilities.

 

2.                     An easement shall be retained over, under and across the proposed vacated alley on behalf of Xcel Energy for existing facilities.  If relocation of the facilities is required by the Petitioner for or arising from this vacation, the Petitioner, its successors and assigns, shall assume all costs of relocation of said facilities.

 

3.        The vacated area would revert back to the City of Saint Paul if the exisiting building is demolished or any improvements take place that would negate the need for the property.

 

4.                      The Petitioner, its successors and assigns shall pay $1,200.00 to the City of Saint Paul as an administrative fee for this vacation which is due and payable within 60 days of the effective date of this resolution.

 

5.                     The Petitioner, its successors and assigns shall, within 60 days of the effective date of this resolution, file with the Office of Financial Services/Real Estate Section, an acceptance in writing of the conditions of this resolution and shall, within the period specified in the terms and conditions of this resolution, comply in all respects with these terms and conditions.

 

 6.                     The Petitioner, its successors and assigns agree to indemnify, defend and save harmless the City of Saint Paul, its officers and employees from all suits, actions or claims of any character brought as a result of injuries or damages received or sustained by any person, persons or property on account of this vacation, or the Petitioner's use of this property, including but not limited to, a claim brought because of any act of omission, neglect, or misconduct of said Petitioner or because of any claims or liability arising from any violation of any law or regulation made in accordance with the law, whether by the Petitioner or any of its agents or employees
