The attached ordinance will abandon a certain portion of Precision Dr., located at the terminus of Precision Dr. west of S. Kirkman Rd.  Virginia Dr. The vacation includes the final ±60 ft. of the Precision Dr. right-of-way in between 5955 & 5935 Precision Dr. to the north and 5934 Precision Dr. to the south. This right-of-way (R-O-W) and abutting properties on either side of Universal Blvd. are to be redeveloped as part of the Wet ‘n Wild water park with up to 4,000 hotel rooms, attraction, and resort uses.
