2. The Board will consider authorizing the Board Chair to execute reciprocal easement agreements between Catawba County and several property owners along Bakers Mountain Road. In recent months, the County has approached several citizens who own property along Bakers Mountain Road, opposite Bakers Mountain Park, requesting their participation in reciprocal easement agreements with the County. The purpose of these easement agreements is to clarify the location of Bakers Mountain Road and the associated right-of-way, to clarify the property owners’ existing access rights.
These agreements will provide the County with access to the owners’ properties for the purpose of future installation of sewer, water and utility services. A survey, done by Darrin L. Reid Surveying and Planning, depicts the location of the road and property boundaries. Surveys will be attached to each easement and recorded in the Register of Deeds Office. Four of five property owners to whom agreements were delivered have signed and returned their agreements to the County, as follows: Jeffrey A. and Stephanie H. Roberts, Robert Harold Conley, Jr. and Cathy W. Conley, Lucas J. and Krista K. Conley, Bishop Peter J. Jugis, on behalf of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Charlotte. Staff recommends the Board authorize the Board Chair to execute reciprocal easement agreements between Catawba County and several property owners along Bakers Mountain Road.
