Overview: The Glen Lennox Development includes a proposed realignment of Maxwell Road. The realignment involves closing a portion of the existing public right-of-way and dedicating new right-of-way. The realignment of Maxwell Road is in accordance with Section 5.4 (a)(2) of the Glen Lennox Development Agreement.

More information about the Glen Lennox Development Agreement may be found at:
https://www.townofchapelhill.org/government/departments-services/planning/development-activity-report/glen-lennox

This process followed the two requirements of North Carolina General Statute Sec. 160A-299:
* Council adopted a resolution declaring its intent to close the public right-of-way and to call a public hearing. The public hearing was held May 5, 2021
* All publication and posting requirements of this statute have been met


Recommendation(s):
That the Council adopt a resolution closing a portion of the public right-of-way to support the realignment of Maxwell Road within the Glen Lennox Development.

Fiscal Impact/Resources: Impacts to future investments are unknown.

Key Issues:
* Closing portions of the public right-of-way is to realign Maxwell Street.
* This re-alignment is in accordance with Section 5.4 (a)(2) of the Glen Lennox Development Agreement and will include right-of-way dedication to maintain the existing 50' wide right-of-way.
* The sole adjacent property owner is Glen Lennox Apartments, LLC, who is requesting the closure and will receive the entire requested right-of-way areas.
* No public comments have been received.
