SUBJECT:

Title

Approval of expenditure of up to $700,000 for the acquisition of the necessary right-of-way and public utility easements from 14 parcels of land along Klein Road between Walnut Avenue and FM 725 as part of the Klein Road Phase 2 Project and authorization for the City Manager to execute all necessary conveyance documents. 

 

Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

Klein Road Phase 2 is one of the approved projects in Proposition 1 of the City of New Braunfels 2019 Bond Program.  The project will improve the current roadway to four lanes, provide intersection enhancements at Walnut Avenue and FM 725, improve the low water crossing and provide for sidewalks and a shared use path.

 

In order to accomplish this project, it is necessary to acquire the right-of-way and public utility easements described in the list attached to this item.  Initial offers were sent to property owners in late November and staff has been negotiating with property owners to reach agreements for the purchase of right-of-way, public utility easements and any damages for improvements (fencing, landscaping, etc) that will be affected by the acquisition. 

 

The above expenditure shall be utilized to cover the acquisition amount plus necessary title closing costs with New Braunfels Title Company.
