Title

Declaring a hardship to satisfy petition requirements for a proposed vacation of Canfield Avenue adjacent to the property at 1290 Snelling Avenue North.

 

Body

WHEREAS, William Turner ("Petitioner") is seeking to vacate a portion of Canfield Avenue adjacent to his property at 1290 Snelling Avenue North, as requested on the petition attached as Exhibit A, for the purpose of establishing a secured landscaped addition to his property and a future storage shed; and

 

WHEREAS, in accordance with the City of Saint Paul's ordinance for vacating city streets, (Legislative Code, Sec. 130.02 (a) (2)), Petitioner has attempted to secure the support of a majority of abutting property owners for the vacation; and

 

WHEREAS, the Petitioner has been unable to reach the owner of the property adjacent to Canfield Avenue to the north, whose support is necessary to constitute a majority of abutting property owners; and

 

WHEREAS, Petitioner believes that the vacation would not adversely impact the neighboring owner’s access to or use of its property; and

 

WHEREAS, pursuant to Legislative Code, Sec. 130.02 (a) (3), Petitioner believes that a hardship therefore exists and requests that the Saint Paul City Council waive the "majority" requirement; now, therefore be it

 

RESOLVED, that the Mayor and Council of the City of Saint Paul do hereby declare that a hardship exists with respect to the proposed petition to vacate said portion of Canfield Avenue adjacent 1290 Snelling Avenue North, and that the requirement to obtain support from a majority of abutting property owners is hereby waived.
