vacate

(1) To move out. (2) To release and give up, such as a city agreeing to vacate a public street and return it to private ownership. (3) To set aside, such as a judge vacating a previously entered order.

Example: At one time residents needed an alley behind their homes so the coal trucks could make deliveries for home heating fuel. Today, there is no longer any need for truck deliveries behind the homes; the residents petition the city for an order vacating the alley and giving the land to adjoining landowners.
