Development Review Services provides the service of the releases and vacations of property rights.
Petition to Vacate request steps:
- The first step in the Petition to Vacate process for public right-of-way or platted easements is a no-cost review of your request. During this review, staff will make non-binding recommendations regarding your request, as well as provide a preliminary indication as to whether staff plans to support or object to the petition at the public hearing. To initiate this first step in the Petition to Vacate process, go to the Petition to Vacate Pre-Application Meeting Request Form.
Please note that regardless of any staff objections that may arise from the above-mentioned review process, the applicant has the full right and ability to submit the Petition-to-Vacate application and proceed to the Board of County Commissioners for the Board to consider the petition.
- The second step in the Petition to Vacate process for public right-of-way or platted easements is to review the Application Process and then submit a complete Petition to Vacate Application. Any required documentation not included with your submitted application should be mailed or hand-delivered to the address below. (It is recommended that you also retain copies of all documents for your records.)
