Resolution Authorizing the Donation of Approximately 3.0395 Acres of Real Property at 8110 Orcutt Avenue to the Hampton Roads Chapter of the American National Red Cross and the Execution and Delivery of the Development Agreement between the City and the American National Red Cross.

 

RESOLUTION

WHEREAS, the City of Hampton (the City) is the owner of a certain parcel of real property containing approximately 3.0395 acres, located at 8110 Orcutt Avenue (the Property) in the City of Hampton, Virginia;

WHEREAS, the Hampton Roads Chapter of the American National Red Cross (the Red Cross) has outgrown its current site located at 4915 W. Mercury Boulevard and situated in front of the Property, and has approached City staff about acquiring the Property as a location for construction of a new Chapter house;

WHEREAS, City staff has determined that the Property would not support higher value housing due to its location and configuration and other commercial uses would lack visibility from Mercury Boulevard and may not be compatible with the residential character of the adjacent neighborhood; 
WHEREAS, City Council is of the opinion that the Property is in excess of the needs of the City and it is expedient and in the best interests of the City to donate the Property to the Red Cross in that (1) it removes an excess parcel of real estate from the City's inventory; (2) it is a significant demonstration of support for a not for profit organization that provides valuable services to its citizens; (3) it allows commercial development on the highly visible corner of Orcutt Avenue and Mercury Boulevard which will generate some tax revenue where none is generated today; and (4) institutional use is the highest and best use for the Property based on the surrounding land uses;

WHEREAS, the Council is authorized under Virginia Code 15.2-953 to donate the Property to the Red Cross; and

WHEREAS, the Council has determined that the terms and conditions of the Development Agreement are acceptable.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by the Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia, as follows:

1. That it approves the donation of the Property to the Red Cross and, accordingly, the City Manager or his authorized Designee is hereby authorized to execute and deliver to the Red Cross any and all necessary legal documents to effectuate the transfer of title to the Property; such documents shall include, but not be limited to, contracts, deeds, easements, and releases for sale and transfer, and conveyance of the Property described above, and shall be in a form that shall substantially comply with the terms of this resolution with such completions, omissions, insertions and changes that may be approved by the Officer executing said documents; that the Officers execution of such documents shall constitute conclusive evidence of the Officers approval of such completion, omission, insertion and change; and

2. That it approves the terms of the Development Agreement and, accordingly, the City Manager or his Authorized Designee is hereby authorized to execute and deliver to the Red Cross the Development Agreement in substantially the form attached hereto.

Adopted at the regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia, held on October 11, 2006.
