(A resolution initiating a street vacation pursuant to ORS 271.130)

 WHEREAS, the City Council may initiate vacation proceedings authorized by ORS 271.080 and pursuant to ORS 271.130 without a petition or consent of the affected property owners;

 WHEREAS, Providence Hood River Hospital, the owner of certain real property located in the City of Hood River, is unable to obtain the requisite signatures/consents to initiate a vacation proceeding on the property owner’s petition for the right-of-way described on Exhibit A;

 WHEREAS, it is in the best interests of the City of Hood River to vacate the right-of-way described on Exhibit A because it will result in the hospital’s ability to expand their services onsite, which in turn serves all of Hood River;

 WHEREAS, there are administrative expenses associated with vacation proceedings for which the petitioner is responsible in property owner initiated vacation proceedings;

 WHEREAS, Providence Hood River Hospital should be required to pay those expenses.

 1. This Resolution shall constitute initiation of vacation proceedings pursuant to ORS 271.130 for the right-of-way shown on Exhibit A.
