body

STATEMENT OF FACTS:

1.  A petition has been filed requesting vacation of a portion of the County Road to Portage right-of-way, as shown in the Plat of Portage 1st Addition, hereinafter described.

2.  The department of transportation notified the various utility companies serving the area and has been advised that CenturyLink has requested an easement on over, in, under, across above and along the west ten feet of George Edwards Road - County Road No. 274, also known as Dockton Road SW. The easement will be recorded under a King County recording number.  No other easements were required within the vacation area at this time.  The vacation shall not reduce the utility company's rights to any existing utility easements within the vacation area.

3.  The department of transportation records indicate that King County has not expended public funds for the acquisition or maintenance of the subject portion of the County Road to Portage right-of-way.

4.  The department of transportation considers the subject portion of right-of-way useless as part of the county road system and believes the public would benefit by the return of this unused area to the public tax rolls.

5.  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 right-of-way, which was determined by a county staff review appraiser.  King County is in receipt of $73,333.00 from the petitioners.

6.  Due notice was given in the manner provided by law and a hearing was held by the office of the hearing examiner on March 6, 2017.  By report of March 20, 2017, the examiner recommended vacation.

7.  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:

                     SECTION 1.  The council, on the effective date of this ordinance, hereby vacates and abandons that portion of the County Road to Portage, as conveyed to King County by the recording of the Plat of Portage 1st Addition, recorded in Volume 14 of Plats, on Page 97, records of King County, Washington as described below:

That portion of the County Road to Portage right-of-way situated in the Southwest Quarter of Section 9, Township 22 North, Range 3 East, Willamette Meridian, King County, Washington, as shown in the Plat of Portage 1st Addition, recorded in Volume 14 of Plats on Page 97, records of King County, Washington, abutting and adjacent to the east line of Block 3 of said Plat and the northerly extension of said east line to the centerline of the Prospect Street right-of-way vacated by Order of Vacation on September 14, 1936, and lying westerly of the west right-of-

way margin of the George Edwards Road - County Road No. 274, also known as Dockton Road SW.
