§                     NC General Statute Section 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 action removes land from public right-of-way and attaches it to the adjacent property.

§                     The attached Resolution refers to exhibits and metes and bounds descriptions that are available in the City Clerk’s Office.

§                     The portion of Cleveland Avenue to be closed is located in Council District 1.

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