Rancho Cucamonga Uses Power Of Eminent Domain To Seize Private Road

According to LoanSafe.org, the city of Rancho Cucamonga in San Bernardino County has initiated eminent domain proceedings to claim the rights to a private dirt road, which has been owned by the same family since the 1940s, in order to improve the easement for a housing subdivision on the street's east side.

The family who owns and lives on a 2.7-acre property, which includes the road, has already rejected an offer of $14,000 from the city as compensation for the rights to the road, which connects the family's property to Base Line Rd. The family then countered with an offer of $30,500 after having consulting with an independent appraiser. If the city rejects the counter offer, the family is prepared to pursue legal action against the city.

The city's plans would widen and pave the private dirt road in order to allow for improved access to the subdivision tract, as well as to improve the flow of traffic and public safety. The housing development for which the city wants to widen the road should be completed in July; however, the time period for the road project does not have a set timeline since it all depends on the resolution of the eminent domain proceedings.

Governments may have the right to use eminent domain to gain the rights to property, but that does not mean they can't provide just compensation for doing so. If you have not been offered rightful compensation for property the government is attempting to seize under eminent domain, experienced Los Angeles eminent domain lawyer John S. Peterson of Peterson Law Group, P.C., can help you get the compensation you deserve. Call Mr. Peterson today for a consultation of your legal rights and options at (213) 236-9720.
