Meydenbauer Bay—Harbor area—Line of navigability.

(1) This resolution has application to that portion of Meydenbauer Bay on Lake Washington lying southeasterly of a line formed by the extension southwesterly of the southeasterly line of S. E. Bellevue Place, Bellevue, Washington, and the extension northeasterly of the northwesterly line of Lot 39, Shorelands, according to plat recorded in volume 330 of plats at page 8, records of King County, Washington.
(2) That portion of Meydenbauer Bay above described lies within, in front of or within one mile of the corporate limits of the city of Bellevue, Washington, but the commission finds that there presently exists no necessity to reserve any part thereof for landings, wharves, streets and other conveniences of navigation and commerce, and for this reason declines to establish harbor area therein.
(3) The following described line lying within the above described portion of Meydenbauer Bay, to wit:
Commencing at the east quarter section corner of Section 31, Township 25 North, Range 5 East, W.M., whose "X" coordinate is 1,661,520.58 and whose "Y" coordinate is 225,661.29 referred to the Washington coordinate system, North Zone, and running thence on an azimuth of 78°51'17" a distance of 963.76 feet to a point whose "X" coordinate is 1,660,575.00 and whose "Y" coordinate is 225,475.00 referred to said coordinate system; thence on an azimuth of 312°06'17" a distance of 420.00 feet to a point hereinafter referred to as Point "A"; thence on an azimuth of 2°21'10" to an intersection with the southwesterly extension of the southeasterly margin of S.E. Bellevue Place, said intersection being the true point of beginning of this line description.
Thence continuing on an azimuth of 2°21'10" to a point 167.66 feet distance from said Point "A"; thence on an azimuth of 312°06'17" a distance of 415.00 feet, thence on an azimuth of 37°24'19" a distance of 125.00 feet and thence on an azimuth of 127°24'19" to an intersection with the northeasterly extension of the northwesterly line of Lot 39, Shorelands as recorded in vol. 33 of plats, page 8, records of King County, Washington, said point of intersection being the terminus of this line description, has been established by the superior court for King County in Cause No. 513081, entitled Grill v. Meydenbauer Bay Yacht Club, to be the boundary line between privately owned shorelands and the publicly owned lake bed. The commission confirms, approves, ratifies and adopts the line so located and established, or as it may be changed and relocated by decree of the supreme court of this state in appeal of the above cause, as the line of navigability in said portion of Meydenbauer Bay. In the event said supreme court shall decree in said appeal that the courts of this state have no jurisdiction to locate and establish the line of navigability, then the above described line shall be and is hereby adopted as the line of navigability in said portion of Meydenbauer Bay.
(4) In the event that the establishment of harbor area within the above described portion of Meydenbauer Bay should become necessary at some time in the future, such harbor area shall be restricted exclusively to lands publicly owned and no part thereof shall be established upon privately owned shorelands.
[Resolution No. 1, filed 8/16/60.]
