1. A petition was filed requesting vacation of a portion of 327th Avenue NE, Carnation, hereinafter described.
2. The road services section notified utility companies serving the area and King County departments of the proposed vacation and has been advised that Puget Sound Energy may have facilities in the vacation area and will obtain written easements directly from the property owners.
