Title
Action on a Release of Interest in three Agreements and Covenants Running with the Land at 5104 Old Ironsides Drive [Council Pillar: Promote and Enhance Economic and Housing Development]

Report
BACKGROUND
On November 29, 1994, as a condition for the issuance of a building permit at 5104 Old Ironsides Drive (Property), the City Council approved two Agreements deferring the construction of public sidewalk along Tasman Drive and Patrick Henry Drive (Attachment 1, Location Map). On May 16, 1995, as a condition for the issuance of a building permit on the Property, the City Council approved an Agreement deferring the payment of public sidewalk improvements along Bunker Hill Lane and Old Ironsides Drive.

The public sidewalk improvements relating to these agreements have been constructed, thereby satisfying the obligations of said agreements.
