Last week was quite busy in the world of California eminent domain, and the start of this week appears to be no different. A few updates:
- International Right of Way Assocation (IRWA) Chapter 67 is holding its annual, half-day seminar on May 10 at the Holiday Inn in Santa Ana (sorry for the late notice). The seminar is focused on mobilehome acquisitions and appraisals, and there are a number of great speakers lined up. (I'll also give a quick update on the City of Los Angeles v. Plotkin decision involving precondemnation damages.) I hope to see you there.
- The Marysville Joint Unified School District has reached a tentative settlement on an eminent domain case scheduled to go trial next month. According to an Appeal Democrat article, MJUSD eminent domain case settles, the 70-acre Yuba County property at issue had a value spread of $770,000 (agency) versus $3.1 million (owner); the main contention was whether the property's highest and best use was for agriculture or residential development.
- The Banning Redevelopment Agency is scheduled to consider the adoption of a resolution of necessity to begin condemnation proceedings to acquire property necessary for the Village at Paseo San Gogornio development. According to a Press Enterprise article, Banning considers eminent domain to obtain property, Banning has already acquired most of the necessary property, but a 15,000 square foot vacant hold-out parcel is necessary in order to complete the Ramsey street widening necessitated by the project. The agency has offered $75,000 for the property.
