Brown in the <br />presence of Commissioner B. G. Brown and Commissioner Larry W. Dennison. <br /> <br />HEARING re: County Road Vacation Petition RV08l0; A Portion of II th <br />Avenue in Riverside Addition to Irondale; Port Townsend Realtv: Administra- <br />tive Secretary, Eileen Simon, reviewed the findings and the agency responses <br />for this petition to vacate a portion of 11th Avenue lying between Blocks 1 <br />and 2 in the Plat of Riverside Addition to Irondale. The length of the <br />right-of-way requested for vacation is 200 feet with a width of 50 feet.. The <br />petitioner is requesting this vacation to allow for the additional property <br />for the construction of several small dwellings. The area requested for <br />vacation would be used for septic system drainfields. <br /> <br />The following agency responses were reviewed: <br /> <br />The Public Works Department recommendation is for denial of the <br />petition as submitted. If the right-of-way was vacated as peti- <br />tioned there would be no access to the north lots in Block 1 and <br />2 and access to Chimacum Creek would be blocked. After a site <br />inspection was made by the County Engineer and Planning Director, <br />an alternative was recommended which is to vacate all streets and <br />lot lines and dedicate a conservation easement from the top of <br />Chimacum Creek Canyon to the creek. <br /> <br />The Assessor's Office reported that the assessed value of the area <br />to be vacated is $1,000.00, and noted that since it is not possible <br />to cross Chimacum Creek on Maude Street, 11th Avenue provides the <br />only platted access to the back lots on Blocks 1 and 2. The <br />vacation would effectively cut off access to these lots. <br /> <br />The Planning Department recommends that all of Blocks 1 and 2, <br />Maude Street and the portion of 11th Street be vacated, since this <br />is an isolated plat surrounded by acreage and the vacation as <br />reTAestedwould effectively cut off access to the lots of fronting <br />on Maude Street as well as public access to Chimacum Creek. They <br />also recommend that a pedestrian access and conservation easement <br />along ChimaclAm Creek from Kincaid Street to the north boundary of <br />the plat. <br /> <br />The Planning Commission recommends approval of the vacation regllest <br />contingent on the applicant exchanging a piece of property of the <br />same size along the west boundary of Block 2 of the Riverside <br />Addition and that the no compensation bereTAired. <br /> <br />,YDL <br /> <br />15 .(.
