SUBJECT
Title
Action on a Resolution Ordering the Vacation of Anchor Easements, Wire Overhang Easement and Public Utility Easement at 3650 Kifer Road

Report
BACKGROUND
On February 10, 2016, the City's Planning Commission approved the Conditional Use Permit for a new five-story, 177,134 square-foot office building and associated on-site improvements, located at 3650 Kifer Road (Property).

DISCUSSION
Due to the redevelopment of the Property, existing anchor easements, a wire overhang easement and a public utility easement encumbering the Property have been relocated or determined to be excess, and these easements are no longer necessary. The Property owner has requested that the City vacate portions of the easements to clear these unnecessary encumbrances on the Property. Any relevant facilities previously within the easements have been removed or abandoned. All departments and agencies having an interest in the easements concur that they are eligible to be vacated. Staff has reviewed this proposal and found that these easements are no longer necessary for public purposes and is recommending that they be vacated according to subsection C of California Streets and Highways Code Section 8333.

ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW
The Mitigated Negative Declaration prepared for the project was approved by the City's Planning Commission on February 10, 2016.

FISCAL IMPACT
There is no additional cost to the City other than staff time and expense.

COORDINATION
This report has been coordinated with the City Attorney's Office, Water & Sewer Utilities Department and Silicon Valley Power.
