12.48.060 Public Hearing Notice – Fifty Percent Objection.
A. Upon the passage of the resolution referenced in SMC 12.48.030, the City Clerk shall give twenty days notice of the pendency of the petition by a written notice posted in three of the most public places in the City and a like notice in a conspicuous place on the street or alley sought to be vacated. The said notice shall contain a statement that a petition has been filed to vacate the street or alley described in the notice, together with a statement of the time and place fixed for the hearing of the petition. In all cases where the proceeding is initiated by resolution of the City without a petition having been signed by the owners of more than two-thirds of the property abutting upon the part of the street or alley sought to be vacated, in addition to notice hereinabove required, there shall be given by mail at least fifteen days before the date fixed for the hearing, a similar notice to the owners or reputed owners of all lots, tracts, or parcels of land or other property abutting upon any street or alley or any part thereof sought to be vacated, or within 300 feet thereof, as shown on the rolls of the County Treasurer, directed to the addresses thereon shown. Failure to send notice by mail to any such property owner where the current address of such property owner is not a matter of public record shall not invalidate any proceedings in connection with the proposed street vacation. The costs of the notice shall be borne by the applicant.
B. In all cases, the City shall be prohibited from proceeding further with the street vacation process, if fifty percent or more of the abutting property owners file written objection to the proposed vacation with the City Clerk prior to the time of hearing. (Ord. 1364, 1977; Ord. 2123, 2007)
