AN ORDINANCE authorizing the vacation of a portion of SE 70th Drive right of way, also known as Geo. Stephan Road and County Road No. 1615, File V-2706; Petitioners: Liway Hsi and Claremont Forest, LLC.
Body
STATEMENT OF FACTS:
1. A petition has been filed requesting vacation of a portion of SE 70th Drive right of way, also known as Geo. Stephan Road and County Road No. 1615, hereinafter described.
2. The department of transportation notified utility companies serving the area and King County departments of the proposed vacation and has been advised that easements are not required within the vacation area.

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. Pursuant to K.C.C. 14.40.020, it is determined that it would benefit King County to accept real property of equal or greater value in lieu of cash compensation. King County is in receipt of a Statutory Warranty Deed from Petitioner Claremont Forest, LLC conveying to King County, land of an equal or greater value than the vacation area consisting of;
