AN ORDINANCE authorizing the vacation of a portion of 90th Ave SW, file no. V-2716; Petitioners:  Stewart Schill and Weslie Brown.



1.  A petition was filed requesting vacation of a portion of 90th Ave SW, hereinafter described.

2.  The department of local services notified utility companies serving the area and King County departments of the proposed vacation and has been advised that Puget Sound Energy requires an easement over the vacation area.  The vacation shall not extinguish the rights of any utility company to any existing easements for facilities or equipment within the vacation area.

3.  The department of local services's records indicate that this segment of right of way is opened and partially maintained.

4.  Due notice was given in the manner provided by law.  The office of the hearing examiner held the public hearing on April 23, 2020.

5.  The examiner found that the subject right-of-way is useless as part of the county road system, concluded that the public will benefit from its vacation, and recommended a full waiver of compensation.

6.  For the reasons stated in the examiner's May 7, 2020, report and recommendation, the council determines that it is in the best interest of the citizens of King County to grant said petition and vacate the right-of-way, without requiring compensation.


                     SECTION 1.  The council, on the effective date of this ordinance, hereby vacates and abandons a portion 90th Ave SW right of way as described below.
