††††††††††††††††††††††† 1.†††††††† Staff recommends motion to:

 

A)adopt a Resolution authorizing the conveyance of 2.85 acres of vacant land to Hypoluxo/Jog, LLC for $513,000, without reservation of mineral rights;

 

B) approve a Deposit Receipt and Contract for Sale and Purchase with Hypoluxo/Jog, LLC for the sale of 2.85 acres of County surplus property located in unincorporated Boynton Beach; and

 

C)    approve a County Deed in favor of Hypoluxo/Jog, LLC.

 

SUMMARY:The County acquired a narrow undevelopable 10.75 acre strip of land by Tax Deed in 1984.The property is located between Ranches Road and Western Way, east of Jog Road in unincorporated Boynton Beach.This property is deemed surplus because it serves no past or future County purpose.The property serves as an existing canal for drainage of the abutting tracts.Hypoluxo/Jog, LLC has acquired several tracts of land abutting the County-owned property and is proposing to develop a PUD including the 2.85 acre portion of the County-owned property which runs directly through the middle of the proposed PUD.Hypoluxo/Jog received zoning approval on May 25, 2006 and Final DRO approval is pending approval contingent upon Hypoluxo/Jogís acquisition of this 2.85 acre property.The assessed value of the entire 10.75 acre parcel is $313,470.Due to the size and shape of the parcel and the fact that it is not developable as an independent tract, an appraisal of the 2.85 acres valued the property at $30,000.In accordance with Section 125.35 (2), F.S. notice of the Countyís intent to sell this land was sent to adjacent property owners, who were given the opportunity to bid on this property.Hypoluxo/Jog was the only respondent.Staff negotiated with the Developer to sell the property for $513,000 ($180,000/per acre).The purchase price is based on the per acre price Hypoluxo/Jog paid for their acquisitions of the surrounding properties.In accordance with Section 270.11(1), F.S., staff recommends that the Board convey the property without reservation of mineral rights, due to the apparent absence of mineral deposits and the fact that such reservation would inhibit development and reduce the marketability of the property.The sale of the property will: (i) lessen the Countyís potential liability and maintenance responsibilities and, (ii) return the parcel to the tax rolls.(PREM)District 3(HJF)††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††† * * * * * * * * * * * *
