The County Executive is hereby authorized to approve acquisition of right-of-way and related easements, or other easements required for neighborhood improvement district projects, including, without limitation, permanent drainage easements, permanent wall easements, permanent utility easements and temporary slope and construction easements up to one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000.00) per parcel for County road and bridge projects that are approved in the County's annual budget or in the transportation improvement plan and up to fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000.00) for neighborhood improvement district projects in districts duly established by ordinance. Acquisitions of parcel(s) which are valued in excess of the limits stated herein for road and bridge projects may be approved on the consent agenda of the County Council if a written request by the County Engineer is approved by the County Executive.

Once the County Executive has given such approval, the County Engineer or, in the case of a neighborhood improvement district, the Director of Community Development shall be authorized to initiate condemnation proceedings to complete the approved acquisitions.
