Discussion

The sidewalk on the north side of West Merritt Avenue adjacent to MILA Elementary School has been severely damaged by tree roots. The sidewalk is located on school property and extends east to North Courtenay Parkway. The sidewalk provides access to the school and the MILA Sports Complex which is operated by Brevard County Parks and Recreation on District property. District staff has been working with Brevard County staff to develop a plan to replace the damaged sidewalk and then turn the ownership over to Brevard County for future maintenance in perpetuity.

The proposed project will remove the damaged asphalt sidewalk and remove several trees that have caused the damage. A new 6' wide concrete pedway will be constructed in the same area. The project will be constructed by Brevard County under our Interlocal Agreement for construction services. A task order for construction will be submitted to the Board at an upcoming meeting. The estimated cost is between $150,000 and $200,000 and will be funded through capital renewal. 

Brevard County staff has prepared the warranty deed, legal description and sketch to transfer the property to Brevard County so that the new sidewalk will be in the public right-of-way. The Board of County Commissioners will consider accepting the deed at a future meeting.

 

Recommendation

Authorize the Chairman to execute the warranty deed to transfer of approximately 0.22 acres of land to Brevard County in order to locate sidewalks within the Merritt Avenue right-of-way.
