On March 20, 2018, the Board of County Commissioners continued the public hearing for the Grand Palisades Parkway right-of-way closing until April 3, 2018 and asked for evidence that the current property owner knew about the petition for closing on this hearing. The petition for closing was signed by a former owner of the adjacent property at the request of the new/current owner. In February 2018, LUESA sent a copy of the Intent to Close to the new/current owner via certified mail. Following the March 20th meeting, LUESA also obtained the signature of the new/current owner on the petition.


The portion of said right-of-way for which the closing has been requested is currently two turnout areas that will not be utilized once the parcel is developed as a multi-family tract by the new/current owner. General Statute 153A-241 requires a public hearing and approval of the Order of Closing by the Board of County Commissioners in order to close a right-of-way in an unincorporated part of the County. The attached Exhibit A map shows the current right-of-way for Grand Palisades Parkway and the portion petitioned to be closed.


The attached Exhibit B is the petition with the new/current property owner as a signatory. Included with the petition is the signed return receipt from the aforementioned certified letter sent back in February.
