Public notice is hereby given that a petition was received 3/18/20 to vacate a public right-of-way in the Bear Creek area. Area under consideration is described as follows:  Location and request: Vacate the west 5 feet of the existing 70-foot wide Camelot Drive right-of-way along the east boundary of lots 6, 7 and 8, Block 2, as dedicated on Camelot by the Sea Subdivision, Plat SW-76.

The roadway is constructed toward the easterly side of the right-of-way, on the side away from the proposed area to vacated. In addition, the roadway and the area adjacent is relatively flat so that no slope easements are necessary.  Petitioner(s): John Craig Turnbull & Catherine Therese Murphy Turnbull of Seward, AK.  Anyone wishing to testify may attend the above meeting via teleconference or may submit a written statement to the attention of Peggy Clements, KPB Planning Department, 144 N.

Public notice is hereby given that a petition was received on 3/23/20 To vacate a public right-of-way in the Fritz Creek Area. Area under consideration is described as follow:  Location and request: This petition is requesting a vacation of:  1. a portion of Fritz Creek Valley Drive right-of-way adjacent to Tract E, Fritz Creek Acres Addition Tracts D & E (HM 78-105) and adjacent to Lot 2, Carl Baier Tract A Weber 1981 Subdivision (HM 82-10 as dedicated on Fritz Creek Acres (HM 78-105) and Fritz Creek Acres No. 4 (HM 2007-122)   2. 66-foot wide section line easement located within the portion of Fritz Creek Valley Drive right-of-way petitioned for vacation per the submittal application. The right-of-way and section line easements being vacated are partially developed and located within the NW1/4 SW1/4 of Section 28, and the NE1/4 SE1/4 Section 29, Township 5 South, Range 12 West, Seward Meridian, Alaska, within the Kenai Peninsula Borough, KPB File 2020-035V.  Purpose as stated in petition: The existing road has been substantially in the same location since before any of the right-of-way dedications of Clark Road (now known as Fitz Creek Valley Drive) per Fritz Creek Acres (HM 77-37). The house shown on the exhibit predates the right-of-way dedication on Fritz Creek Acres Addition (HM 78-105), per the owners’ records. The exact dates are a bit unclear but the owner thinks the house was built in the 1960’s and was purchased in about 1975. The owner does not know why or how the right-of-way was dedicated over the existing house. The current owner, Terri Bramel Trust and her late husband have owned this house since 1975. The owner would like to sell the property and wishes to preserve the customary use of the property for any new owners without the previously dedicated right-of-way interfering. This vacation will allow the current and future owners of Tract E to use the property as it has long been used.  Petitioner(s): Terri Bramel Trust of Anchorage, AK.  Anyone wishing to testify may attend the above meeting via teleconference or may submit a written statement to the attention of Peggy Clements, KPB Planning Department, 144 N. Binkley St., Soldotna, AK 99669. The Planning Department recommends that written comments be received by 1:00 P.M., Friday, May 10, 2020. [Written comments may also be sent by email to the addresses below or by Fax to 907-714-2378]. If the Planning Commission approves the vacation, the Borough Assembly has thirty days from that decision in which they may veto the Planning Commission approval.
