Item Description:

Consideration of Ordinance No. 19-16 approving an engineer’s survey and authorizing the acquisition of land for the 119th and Pflumm Geometric Improvements Project, PN 3-C-071-18.  .

Body

________________________________________________________________________________

Summary:

Project No. 3-C-071-18 was created by Resolution No. 18-1032 on March 20, 2018 and re-authorized by Resolution No. 18-1048 on May 1, 2018.

 

This is a joint project between the City of Olathe and the City of Overland Park.  This project will construct right-turn lanes and dual left-turn lanes for all legs of the intersection.  The design and construction of the project will be administered by the City of Olathe.  Attachment A is a map of the project area.

 

Right-of-way and/or easements need to be acquired on 3 tracts of land in Olathe for the project and 2 tracts have been acquired to date.

 

On April 16, 2019, the City Council approved Resolution No. 19-1030 which authorized an engineering survey of land needed for the project.

 

This ordinance is the second step of the eminent domain process.  The ordinance approves the survey and authorizes the filing of a petition for eminent domain in the Johnson County, Kansas District Court (Attachment B - Ordinance).

 

To keep the project on schedule, land acquisition needs to be completed by May 31, 2019.  Staff is continuing to negotiate with the property owners to try to reach agreements to acquire the property needed before filing the eminent domain petition.
