May 11, 2004 <br /> Doug Owens <br /> Attorney of Law <br /> 911 6th Street <br /> Anacortes,WA 98221 <br /> Dear Mr. Owens: <br /> Subject: Final Proposal for the 28th Street Right-of-Way Acquisition <br /> After meeting with you on April 29,2004, I did meet with Mr. Evans to discuss additional land to vacate. <br /> After that meeting on May 4, 2004 with Mr. Evan's,I was informed by Mr. Bob Hyde,Public Works <br /> Director,that we could honor the 98-foot dimension.We can do a Quit Claim Deed and Amend the Short <br /> Plat.Because of the location of the proposed improvements in 28th Street and H Avenue, an 8-foot x 134- <br /> foot dimension will have some of our improvements on private property. <br /> In my discussion with Mr. Evan's,he said that he did not mind having a trapezoidal lot. He was very <br /> interested in a street vacation that extended to the back of sidewalk. His calculation had the back of the <br /> sidewalk moved to the curb along H Avenue. The City of Anacortes would like to keep an area for future <br /> franchise expansion. We either get that,typically, in the green space between the sidewalk and curb or <br /> behind the sidewalk. <br /> I would like to proceed with the Quit Claim Deed, Street Vacation and Short Plat. The added dimension <br /> would be, 8.5 feet x 120 feet,then having a short angle back to the southwest corner of Lot 1 of the <br /> proposed Short Plat. This will give Mr. Evan's a total of 13, 139.5 Square Foot for 1720 28th Street. The <br /> original agreement was for 13, 132 Square Feet. <br /> Enclosed you will find an agreement and that has been agreed upon between the two parties and is a win- <br /> win for everybody. This agreement will resolve the ongoing dust and drainage issues that have plagued <br /> the neighborhood for years. There is also a drawing to clarify locations of the improvements as agreed. If <br /> you could discuss this agreement with your clients and have them sign it and return it, I will move <br /> forward with the construction plans. <br /> Thank you for your attention to this matter. If you have any questions,please do not hesitate to call me at <br /> 360-661-3468. <br /> Sincerely, <br /> CITY OF ANACORTES <br /> Steven R. Lange <br /> Project Manager <br />
