STATEMENT OF FACTS:

1.  Highland Pacific Housing Group LLC petitioned to vacate a portion of the S 356th Street right-of-way, also known as 16th Street, and the 55th Place S right-of-way, also known as Texas Avenue, hereinafter described.

2.  The petition seeks to vacate those portions of unopened rights-of-way to allow construction of a proposed public storm-water drainage pond under approved department of permitting and environmental review permits L06CG4110 and L06RW031.  This area will then be converted to a drainage tract in the Pepper Hill Estates preliminary plat.

3.  The needs of the agencies and utility companies serving the area were reviewed by the department of permitting and environmental review under Special Use Permit SUPS15-0143, and the Pepper Hill Estates preliminary plat, pending approval. The department of permitting and environmental review determined that no easements are needed at this time.

4.  The department of transportation records indicate that King County has not expended public funds for the acquisition or maintenance of the subject portions of the S 356th Street and 55th Place S rights-of-way.

5.  The department of transportation considers the subject portions of rights-of-way useless as part of the county road system and believes the public would benefit by the storm-water drainage pond to be constructed in this area.

6.  The right-of-way is classified as "C-Class" and, in accordance with K.C.C. 14.40.020, the compensation due to King County is based on fifty percent of the assessed value of the subject rights-of-way, which was determined from records of the department of assessments.  King County has received $11,447.59 from the petitioner.

7.  Due notice was given in the manner provided by law and the office of the hearing examiner held a hearing on October 24, 2016. The examiner concluded that the road segment subject to this petition is not useful as part of the King County road system and that the public will benefit from its vacation.

In consideration of the benefits to be derived from the subject vacation, the council has determined that it is in the best interest of the citizens of King County to grant said petition.

                     BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KING COUNTY:
