Body

DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION

Surveyor's Office recommending the Board adopt a Resolution of Vacation for Abandonment of Easement 16-004 (AOE 16-004) to abandon a public utility easement and an anchor easement on Lot 278 of " Lakehills Estates, Unit No. 3," further identified as Assessor's Parcel Number (APN) 110-531-15. Abandonment was requested by the owner, Holly Z. Arroyo. Said easements are more particularly described in Exhibit A, and depicted on Exhibit B of the attached Resolution. This abandonment of easement is required prior to approval of the development permits desired by the owner.

 

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

The public utility easement and anchor easement, as shown on Lot 278 of " Lakehills Estates, Unit No. 3", recorded at Book C of Subdivisions at Page 39 was offered to the County of El Dorado by, Wright and Kimbrough, a corporation, on January 26, 1960. The easements were accepted by the County of El Dorado on March 21, 1960 and the Subdivision Map recorded on March 21, 1960. These types of public utility easements are required by the public utility companies on subdivisions in El Dorado County. These required offers of easement are not generally based on an established need, but are a standard requirement in case there is a current or future need for them. When a member of the public requests an abandonment of easement, the concerned utilities review exhibits of the proposed abandonment to determine if they ever have used the easement area for their infrastructure or if a future need actually exists.

 

ALTERNATIVES

An alternative would be to not adopt a Resolution of Vacation for Abandonment of Easement 16-004. By utilizing this alternative, the owner of Assessor's Parcel Number 110-531-15, would be unable to obtain approval for for the development permits they desire.

 

OTHER DEPARTMENT / AGENCY INVOLVEMENT

AT&T, Comcast, El Dorado Irrigation District, and Pacific Gas & Electric have not used said easements for the purpose for which they were dedicated and find no present or future need exists for those easements and do not object to their vacation, and to that end, have provided approval letters to the County Surveyor’s Office.

 

CAO RECOMMENDATION

Chief Administrative Office concurs with staff's recommendations.
