Clarkdale could cede portion of Paz and Coda subdivision

CLARKDALE -- A neighborhood over 100 years old could go back to the property owners as Clarkdale council members decide whether to abandon a portion of fifth street in the Paz and Cota subdivision plat.

The area was first plotted out in 1912, but was never developed or formally dedicated, said town planner Beth Escobar.

"There are a handful of homes, but the street sustem was never improved and there's not infrastructure out there," Escobar said. "Once it's abandoned, it's pretty much split down the middle and becomes part of the property of the two adjacent property owners."

Council members are considering these new items in addition to revisiting the CDBG block grant and voting to approve a preliminatry budget.

Escobar said the town of Clarkdale is small, and doesn't have specialized professionals like lawyers and engineers on staff. The council will hear options for ways to pay for outside contractors.

"We don't charge back to the citizens costs for doing business," she said. "We're looking for a way for those fees to roll over to the applicant."

This could be done through application fees that are added to the town code, Escobar said.

Council members meet Tuesday at 3 p.m. in the Clarkdale Memorial Clubhouse.
