<br />benefits to the community would accrue regardless of the building,'s 'location and wondered
<br />whether the building could be located so as not to straddle the ?lley,., , They said closure
<br />of the alley would have direct bearing on their dentistry practice.
<br />. Mr. Hazen welcomed use by the dentists and their patients of the thoroughfares which
<br />will be provided through his firm's property. He said construction of the building
<br />as planned would not be possible without vacation of the public 'al~ey.

<br />resulted in setting a valuation of $15,804.26 for the assessment against abutting prop-
<br />erties, which is the value of the land plus City's cost and assessment, for paving.
<br />Discussion continued with regard to public access to adjacent dentistry offices, use
<br />of alleys as main thoroughfares rather than service access only, provision for pedes-
<br />trian and bicycle traffic, general vacation of alleys in the downtown area, inconven-
<br />ience to the gene~al public. Councilman Mohr asked who would be responsible for mainte-
<br />nance of the pedestrian and bicycle ways through the Bank I s property. Manager replied
<br />that maintenance could ~e added as a condit'ion of the vacation. He added clarification
<br />of basis on which decision should be made to vacate - only if benefit to the 'public out-
<br />weighs any disadvantage to the public.
