The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the request for vacating Lots 1-7 of the Beulah Heights Subdivision for the expansion of the existing adjacent self storage complex. The subject property is not currently used for public access or use. A reservation for a public utilities easement will be retained.

The vacation of the lots is requested by Robert V. Nicholson. This property is generally located on the east side of Thomas Avenue and on the north side of Olivet Avenue. Any utility easement necessary for the property will be recorded with the Lake County Clerk of Courts.
The Planning Commission held a public hearing on the application on July 22, 2010 and by a vote of 6 to 0, recommended approval.
1. Approve the request to vacate Lots 1-7 of the Beulah Heights Subdivision.
2. Other action the Commission may deem appropriate.
No fiscal impact is anticipated as a result of this vacation.
