MISSION: TO SERVE EVERY STUDENT WITH EXCELLENCE AS THE STANDARD



02-12-2008 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #31


Title
F-21. Conveyance of 7.9 +/- Acre Parcel to the City of Titusville for Stormwater Retention Pond

Discussion

Since Titusville High School and Astronaut High School now have on campus football fields the DRAA Field Stadium is no longer used by the District.  The City of Titusville has requested that the District transfer a 7.9 +/- acre parcel of the 17.4 acre DRAA Field site to the City for use as a stormwater retention pond to alleviate drainage problems in the adjacent area.  The parcel proposed to be transferred consists of the former football stadium site.  The north area bus compound which is also located on the DRAA Field site and used by the District would be unaffected by the transfer to the City.

 

The District received the DRAA Field site at no cost from Brevard County and the City of Titusville in a series of transfers from 1961 through 1977.  SREF Section 1.4 authorizes the transfer of School District owned real property to another governmental entity at no cost at the discretion of the School Board.

 

In exchange for the transfer of the 7.9 +/- acre parcel, the City will dismantle and remove the football stadium facility at the City’s expense and also cancel any stormwater utility fees or assessments on District owned real property and exempt the District from any future stormwater fees or assessments.

 

The legal description and sketch of the parcel of land to be conveyed is being prepared and will be provided to the Board prior to the February 12, 2008 meeting.  The transfer of the deed will occur after the City complies with the conditions discussed above.

 



Recommendation

Approve the conveyance by quit claim deed of a 7.9 +/- acre parcel of the DRAA Field site to the City of Titusville for use as stormwater retention pond and associated governmental uses.  Authorize the Chairman and the Superintendent to execute and deliver the quit claim deed to the City in accordance with terms set forth below.
