SUMMARY:

                                          

The Parks and Recreation Department requests that City Council approve a vacation of a segment of the East Yonge Street right-of-way (400 Block) between the west line of Davis Highway and the east line of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive. The primary purpose of the vacation is to accommodate future development at Magee Field Park.

 

Upon approval of the right-of-way vacation, City staff will combine the vacated right-of-way, the current parcel at Magee Field Park, and all city owned parcels located directly south of the park (Dr. MLK, Jr. Drive to the west, Bobe Street to the south, and Davis Highway to the east) into one parcel for future park programming and expansion needs.

 

The City will retain a utility easement along the vacated right-of-way segment for the existing ECUA and Pensacola Fire infrastructure in place.

 

The Planning Board approved the request during the June 14, 2022 meeting on a vote of 6:0.
