Title
Public Hearing: Application #PL2021-318 - Vacation of Right of Way - a segment of SE 15th Street located east of SE Dalton Drive (adjacent to 1501 SE Dalton Drive); Lee's Summit R-7 School District, applicant.

Body
Issue/Request:
The applicant requests to vacate an approximately 50’ wide x 106’ long segment of SE 15th St located east of SE Dalton Dr. The subject right-of-way stub was dedicated for future residential street extension to the east at the time the abutting acreage was developed. The abutting acreage is now the site of East Trails Middle School. The approved plan for the school did not require the extension of a street through the subject right-of-way and as a result no longer serves a public purpose for the street network. Interconnectivity between the new middle school and the Newberry subdivision was achieved by extending other existing street stubs located to the north and south at SE 13th St and SE Cape Dr, respectively. Upon the vacation of right-of-way, the abutting residential lots to the north and south will receive the abutting half of the vacated right-of-way.
The subject segment of right-of-way provides driveway access to the abutting residence to the south. As part of the vacation of right-of-way, the school district has removed the entire street stub and sidewalk that was located along the south side of the stub. In its place, a new driveway and north-south segment of sidewalk has been constructed to provide public street access for 1501 SE Dalton Dr onto SE Dalton Dr.
