CRA RESOLUTION 2006/003 – A Resolution of the City of Deerfield Beach Community Redevelopment Agency, supporting the Hillsboro Streetscape Project.

 

Carlos Baia, CRA Director, stated that the CRA Resolution, supports the proposed vacation of the public right-of-way in order to accomplish one of the last two easements.  FPL requires the City to obtain easements, which have to be on real property and not public right-of-way.  The process is underway for the corridor of SE 15th Avenue.  He said if FPL is not notified immediately, and starts right away, it will delay the project.  The Resolution will allow FPL to proceed with the project.

 

Mrs. Militello asked if the vacation will allow the City to do all that is required.

 

Mr. Baia replied that he is confident.  He stated, “that the original location has a water main conflict, so another right-of-way location is being selected; however, the new location will have to appear before the Commission as a public hearing.”  He suggested that the project start now.

 

MOTION was made by Mrs. Militello and seconded by Ms. Poitier to support the Hillsboro Streetscape Project.  Roll Call: YEAS: Mrs. Militello, Ms. Poitier, Mr. Popelsky, and Vice Chair Gonot.  NAYS: None.
