body
STATEMENT OF FACTS:
1. A petition was filed requesting vacation of a portion of SW Luana Beach Road (aka Skalberg Road or County Road No. 834), 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 no easements are required over the vacation area. The vacation will 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 SW Luana Beach Road is opened and maintained. The subject section of right of way is adjacent to the improved roadway.
4. The department of local services recommends vacation and a waiver of compensation.
5. Due notice of the public hearing was given in the manner provided by law. The office of the hearing examiner held the public hearing on June 23, 2020.
6. As detailed in his July 8, 2020, recommendation, 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.
7. For the reasons detailed 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.
