Public notice is hereby given that an application to vacate a utility easement in the city of Homer was received on 5/29/19 by the Planning Department of the Kenai Peninsula Borough. Location: Vacate the 10 foot wide drainage easement on Lot 24-A, AA Mattox Peggi’s Addition, granted by AA Mattox Peggi’s Addition (Plat HM 99-64); within Sec 17, T06S, R13W, S.M., AK, within the Kenai Peninsula Borough. KPB File 2019-048V. Purpose as stated in the petition: The 10’ drainage easement has not been used since it was granted in 1984. There is an alternative corridor in place on the Nelson Ave. ROW above the north lot line of the subject property. A long driveway permit on the Nelson Ave. ROW has been issued by the City of Homer to the Quiet Creek Park LLC Project. The long driveway permit requires that the existing drainage corridor remain in place on the north side of the long driveway. The current corridor on the Nelson Ave. ROW handles any storm or seasonal water runoff from the Quiet Creek Park LLC Project and above, as well as, the drainage plan in place in the Quiet Creek Park LLC Project. The owner understands that the City of Homer prefers not to cross personal property when other more adequate options or corridors are available to the City for drainage and seasonal runoff. The subject property is currently for sale and buyers are concerned about the future use of the subject property 10’ drainage easement, therefore preventing them from making an offer on the subject property. This is creating an adverse effect to the subject property. Vacating this easement would not create any adverse effects to the surrounding properties. Petitioner(s)/Owner(s): Annalisa Cox of Homer, AK – Current landowner/applicant & Peggi L. Patton – Former land owner.      MEETING INFORMATION
