WHEREAS, after reviewing the testimony presented at the aforementioned public hearing of the Board of Vacations, said Board has submitted its recommendation and report to the Public Works, Planning, and Transportation Committee; and

 

WHEREAS, the Board of Vacations recommends approval of the vacation request based on the following findings: 1) Antioch Township has no objection to the request; 2) Without an active homeowner’s association, there is no official oversight of the right-of-way use; 3) The vacation would relieve the County of any liability associated with the right-of-way; and 4) The vacation would place the property in private ownership and on the tax rolls; and

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Lake County Board that the public right-of-way, as described above, is hereby vacated and that portion of said plats of subdivision are hereby revoked, annulled, and set aside; and

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this resolution shall take effect and be in force for and after its passage provided that said petitioner shall after the passage of this resolution, file for recording in the office of the County Recorder of Deeds, a certified copy of this resolution, the application, and the Deed of Vacation.
