§                     NC General Statute 160A-299 outlines the procedures for permanently closing streets and alleys. 

§                     The Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT) received a petition to abandon public right-of-way and requests this City Council action in accordance with the statute.

§                     The proposed action removes land from public right-of-way and attaches it to the adjacent property.

§                     The alley to be closed is located in Council District 1.

§                     Review by City departments identified no apparent reason this closing would:

-                     Be contrary to the public interest;

-                     Deprive any individual(s) owning property in the vicinity of reasonable means of ingress and egress to their property as outlined in the statutes; and

-                     Be contrary to the adopted policy to preserve existing rights-of-way for connectivity.
