WHEREAS, the Council of the City of Hampton (City Council) has set as a priority the improvement of navigation along the Hampton River;

WHEREAS, City Council has budgeted $2.2 million in the 2008 Capital Budget to fund the dredging of the primary channel of the Hampton River;

WHEREAS, City Council has determined that it is in the best interest of the City, its citizens and visitors that the Ancillary Channels of the Hampton River be dredged to aid navigation and to open up the Hampton River to better boat access for the residents along the main channel and Ancillary Channels of the Hampton River and for the general public;

WHEREAS, City Council has proposed to approve an additional $2 million to fund the dredging of the Ancillary Channels in the 2009 Capital Budget;

WHEREAS, the proposed dredging of the Ancillary Channels of the Hampton River will affect the riparian portion of the real property of owners along the Ancillary Channels thus requiring a legal mechanism to acquire access for initial dredging and future dredging and access for public navigation; and

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

1. That it is in the best interest of the City, its citizens and visitors that the Ancillary Channels of the Hampton River be dredged to aid navigation and to open up the Hampton River to better boat access for the residents along the main channel and Ancillary Channels of the Hampton River and for the general public;

2. That the addition of the Ancillary Channels to the Hampton River Dredging Project is hereby approved;

3. That the dredging of the Ancillary Channels is conditioned upon the granting to the City of Hampton a perpetual irrevocable public recreational easement for public navigation and a perpetual irrevocable easement for the initial dredging and future maintenance of the dredging over the riparian portion of an affected property by every property owner along an Ancillary Channel; and

4. That this Resolution shall be effective upon adoption.
