Background Discussion
  • Applicants Eric Tupin Grimes and Caroline Dawn Grimes, as Trustees under the Grimes Family Trust, and Robert R. and Susan L. Kubinski, and Nelda L. and Stafford E. Polk III are requesting vacation of 20' of unimproved platted right-of-way known as Drayton Street.

  • This unimproved platted right-of-way runs North and South. It is located at 19th Avenue Northwest to the south, Davis Street to the north (per plat), 81st Street Northwest to the west, and Shaw's Point subdivision to the east that is separated by a hiatus currently owned by Eric and Caroline Grimes.
