Public notice is hereby given that a petition was received on 11/6/2020 to vacate a public rights-of-way and associated utility easements in the Nikolaevsk area. Area under consideration is described as follows: Location and request: Vacate portions of Universe Avenue, Komsomol Street and Markoka Avenue right of ways and vacate all of Planet Place right of way, including all associated clearing and underground utility easements and anchor easements as dedicated on Terrace View, Plat HM 74-2194. The rights-of-way being vacated are mostly unconstructed and located within Section 22, Township 4 South, Range 14 West, Seward Meridian, Alaska, within the Kenai Peninsula Borough. KPB File 2019-150VR1. Purpose as stated in petition: We have been living off Markoka since 2006. We are the common owner for all the property that surround all right of ways to be vacated. There are no utilities anywhere near our property. The road stops at our property and is not up to borough standards. It is also not completely on the right of way. We would like to vacate all right of ways to include Markoka Ave, Planet Pl., Universe Ave. and Komsomol St. We have had issues since 2006 with people trying to steal personal property. We have been the only people living at the end of the road and maintaining this road since moving here in 2006. We have been acquiring other property that connect to our original property to expand our farm. The vacation would not hinder any other landowner from accessing their land because there are other easements every ¼ mile from our lands. The vacation would not only give peace of mind to one of the owners because they are a veteran that suffers from PTSD. Also, it makes it easier for fencing to be put up for livestock and to protect crops and property. We believe this vacation would not only benefit ourselves, but it would also benefit the community by allowing us to expand our farming operation to provide locally grown produce more easily.
