This week, the City Council for Long Beach approved using its power of eminent domain to acquire a nearly 10,000-square-foot strip of land north of Second Street in order to widen Pacific Coast Highway for a right-turn lane. The property is behind City National Bank and in front of Hof's Hut restaurant.
Paul Eakins reports in his Long Beach Press Telegram article "Council OKs eminent domain for PCH turn lane" that the City offered $655,000 to the property owner, which offer had been rejected.
