Brown called the meeting to order at 10:00 <br />a.m. All members were present. <br /> <br />Hearing; Petition to Vacate Portion of Third Avenue, Irondale: <br />Chairman Brown opened the hearing. Betty Redling and lzetta Stark, <br />the petitioner, attended the ~earing. David Goldsmith reported that <br />the Public Works Department objects to the vacation because it would <br />limit access to property to the southeast and restrict traffic circu- <br />lation; that the City of Port Townsend requested retention of a <br />utility easement for water lines running down the street; and that <br />the Planning Commission recommended approval of the vacation and fur- <br />ther recommended that the County also vacate the alley, noting that <br />the petition was considered by the Planning Commission without a <br />traffic circulation plan for the area and without representation from <br />the Public Works Department. Mr. Goldsmith stated that none of the <br />other agencies responded to notification of the proposed vacation. <br />Milt Sanstrom reiterated the Public Works Department position and <br />stated that the area is not developed enough at this point to know <br />what the needs will be in the future. Mrs. Stark pointed out that the <br />steep hills would make the road, if opened, dangerous and that the <br />terrain is not condusive to development. Mrs. Redling noted that a <br />road running along the beach could be reopened to provide circulation, <br />but it was pointed out that there is a problem with this, in that most <br />of the right-of-way for that road has already been vacated. Chairman <br />Brown invited further comment and, when none was forthcoming, closed <br />the hearing. Commissioner Mercer moved to return the petition to the <br />Planning Commission for further consideration in light of additional <br />information regarding traffic circulation and previous vacation. <br />Commissioner O'Meara seconded the motion. Unanimous. The Commissioners <br />will consider the petition again on February 8, 1982 at 10:30 a.m. <br /> <br />Inquiry Regarding Purchase of County Property: Wally Bowman <br />approached the Board about purchasing some County property in order to <br />provide better access to his property. He was advised to check with <br />the Treasurer to see whether the property might be declared surplus <br />and when a sale could take place and/or to consider purchasing a piece <br />of property with gravel which could be traded advantageously to the <br />County for the property Mr. Bowman wants. <br /> <br />Annexation of Shine/South Point Area to Fire District #3: <br />The Prosecuting Attorney and the Assessor discussed the procedures for <br />this annexation. The Board reviewed that the appropriate petitions <br />had been certified by the Auditor, that the Fire Protection District <br />#3 Commissioners had provided their resolution requesting the annex- <br />ation, and that an agreement for a one time assessment of 20i per <br />thousand on the annexed property as compensation for assets of the <br />district had been agreed upon. There was additional discussion and, <br />on January 26, 1982, Commissioner Mercer made a motion to approve and <br />sign Resolution No. 12-82 annexing the described territory to Fire <br />Protection District #3 and ordering the assessment in 1982 for payment <br />in 1983, and for Commissioner O'Meara to sign the resolution upon his <br />return. Commissioner Brown seconded the motion. <br /> <br />VOl <br /> <br />8 rAG~ <br /> <br />,':07 <br />, <br /> <br />147 <br />
