Seaside City Council denies
9olunteers souJht for %rew &up
resident’s street vacation request
The Daily Astorian
&ouncilors
feared precedent
By KATHERINE
LACAZE
EO Media Group
6(A6,D( ² The 6ea-
side &ity &ouncil denied a
reTuest from :ayne 3oole to
vacate a portion of an unde-
veloped street infrinJed on
by a pool built in the 10s.
³,¶ve not really chanJed
my opinion that , have a ¿ -
duciary responsibility to our
voters and our ta[payers,
and , Must don¶t thinN we can
Jive it away,´ & ouncilor Tita
Montero said Monday.
Mayor Don Larson was
the lone supporter of the
reTuest . Other councilors
said they sympathized with
3oole, as the mistaNe was
not his, but did not support
JivinJ away property that
could be used in the future
to meet public needs. Do-
inJ so, they said, could set
a danJerous precedent.
,n 1, 3oole¶s par-
ents, %ob and Marianne,
developed their property on
1orth +olladay Drive near
6easide +iJh 6chool and
added a pool that crossed
property lines onto what
used to be 21st Avenue.
3oole is tryinJ to correct
the mistaNe to enable sale
of the property. &onsultinJ
firm OtaN ,nc. recommend-
ed he seeN a street vacation,
which would reTuire the
city to enact an ordinance.
³:e¶re Must tryinJ to
solve the problem,´ 3oole
said. ³:hat was suJJested
to us was the vacation, be-
cause this was the Jeneral
theory, that streets are dedi-
cated to the public. They¶re
donated, and if they¶re not
needed they Jo bacN to the
adMoininJ landowners.´
Larson favored JrantinJ
the reTuest, sayinJ the city
has passed ordinances re-
linTuishinJ public riJht-of-
way to adMacent landowners
in the past.
Montero said records
show the city did so be-
tween 20 to 30 times in the
past but has not vacated a
street since 200. 6he said
she does not feel comfort-
able JivinJ up public prop-
erty.
&ity attorney Dan 9an
Thiel said he does not ad-
vise cities to vacate streets
unless they are certain
the property will never
be needed for public use,
³an e[tremely hiJh bar´ to
meet, he added.
Larson said he does not
thinN the property, about
50 sTuare feet, means
³anythinJ to anyone.´
³Tita, , don¶t believe
that most of the people that
voted for you, any of them,
Nnow about this street,´
Larson said. ³This is Must
not a Nnown item. This is
only Nnown by the people
here and the people in the
audience.´
&ouncilor 6eth Morrisey
said he was in favor of a
licensinJ aJreement rath-
er than a street vacation. A
licensinJ aJreement would
allow the property owners
to leJally occupy the city
riJht-of-way, but the city
could reclaim the property
for future use. +owever, a
licensinJ aJreement is tem-
porary, which could maNe
it difficult for prospective
buyers to secure financinJ.
The council did not taNe
action but aJreed to consid-
er any solution 3oole pre-
sented in the future. 3oole
said he was willinJ to pro-
vide some form of compen-
sation throuJh reimburse-
ment or sale of the property.
