I'm evaluating placement of bus shelters with stops and the dimensions of the shelter would place us several feet into a private property. The landowner is ok with placing a bus shelter and stop but our agency has never done so - only public right of ways. We've secured state right-of-way permits for the shelter but it will be in both public right of way and private right of way. What are the central tennants to an easement agreement? What elements are essential to the agreement, adapted to our needs? Any templates or samples on the net? And what planning processes must it go thru (i.e. city council approval, city zoning commission approval, etc.?)
Any insight would be helpful.
