AN ORDINANCE authorizing the vacation of 10273 147th Avenue SE 98059, file no. V-2721; Petitioners: Troy and Kathleen Solly.



1.  A petition was filed requesting vacation of 10273 147th Avenue SE 98059, 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 Comcast 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 unopened and unmaintained.  Another section of this right of way was vacated in 1987 under King County Ordinance 8023, Vacation File V-1895.

4.  Due notice was given in the manner provided by law.  The office of the hearing examiner held a public hearing on April 3, 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 April 17, 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 SE 104th Street right of way as described below:

That portion of the right of way of SE 104th Street as shown on the Plat of May Valley Co-Op Community as recorded in Volume 66 of Plats, Page 93, Records of King County, Washington, adjoining Lot 23, Block 2 of

said Plat.

Containing 5,508 square feet, more or less.
