Background Discussion
The original 44th Avenue East Road Right of Way Improvement Project was approved in the FY 1994/1995 CIP on February 25, 1994, and re-approved in FY 2009/2010 CIP on September 15, 2009, Resolution R-09-219.

On December 13, 2012, Appraiser Dan K. Richardson, MAI, of  R & W Enterprises, Inc., determined the value of the area for acquisition at: $200,900 for 2.653 acres of land and $63,100 for improvements that include a single family house, two sheds, concrete parking area, gated shell driveway, various fencing, and septic system.  Total appraised value of the parcel is $264,000.

A settlement was reached at $370,260 for a total take of the property, inclusive of all fees and costs. The above quoted purchase price is a negotiated figure representing a litigation avoidance settlement which eliminates additional costs for litigation, including fees for attorneys, property appraisers, land planners, engineers, and surveyors, as illustrated in the Cost Avoidance Analysis attached.

The Contract for Purchase for a Warranty Deed and attached Addendum is hereby submitted to the BCC for execution in the amount of $370,260.
