BACKGROUND: 

On November 2, 2021, the Board of County Commissioners approved and authorized the acquisition by negotiation a portion of Assessor's Parcel No. 161-36-101-004 (Forestar (USA) Real Estate Group, Inc.) needed for road and drainage as part of the Hollywood Boulevard extension between Vegas Valley Drive and Galleria Drive.  The parcel is a planned residential community and the alignment of the Hollywood Boulevard extension will split the planned development and eliminate 45 residential lots and require the reconfiguration of the planned development.

The County's appraiser established the value of the vacant land for the road and drainage easement at $1,612,432.  The property owner had offered up comparable sales of vacant property that in its opinion would establish the value at $4,174,420.  However, the vacant properties used had better availability to utilities and transportation.  The property owner then presented data that the 6.83 acres needed for road and drainage easement, along with the severance of the large parcel by the alignment, resulted in the loss of 45 lots.  Based upon the per-unit-cost of the development including the land resulted in a value of $4,406,395.

Public Works and the property owner have agreed to a settlement amount for the acquisition in the amount of $4,000,000.  In addition, the property owner will be responsible for the construction of the drainage channel.

Authorization to approve and authorize this negotiated purchase is now being requested from the Board.
