Street & Alley Vacations

Many cities and towns have unopened streets and alleys within their city limits which are platted and dedicated to the city as streets. If the city or town does not have a need for the property as a street and does not foresee that it ever will, then the street vacation statutes provide a means for vacating the easement for travel so that the property may be used for another purpose. 

The statutes which provide for street vacations are contained in Revised Code of Washington 35.79 and apply to all classes of cities and towns.
