Mount Vernon Street (Route 14) Road Widening Project in Nixa, MO
Public Informational Meeting: October 5, 2017
Christian County property owners who may be impacted by the Mount Vernon Street (Route 14) Roadway Widening Project can learn about the eminent domain process at a public informational meeting on Thursday, October 5, 2017, at the Super 8 Hotel Nixa. Landowners and members of the community are invited to attend this free educational workshop.
The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) proposes to widen Mount Vernon Street (Route 14) to five lanes. The West Corridor will be widened between Westminster and Estes Street, and the East Corridor will be widened between Fort Street and Tiffany Boulevard. The West Corridor is scheduled to begin Right of Way acquisition this summer, and the East Corridor is scheduled to begin Right of Way acquisition the summer of 2018.
To complete the proposed project, it is expected that private property will need to be acquired by MoDOT using its power of eminent domain. It is expected that property and business owners in the project path will soon start to receive offers from MoDOT for their property.
At this public meeting, Krause and Kinsman attorney Adam Krause will discuss the condemnation process and how landowners can protect their property rights.
Some topics that will be covered in the workshop include:
- Can I prevent the taking of my property?
- Do I have to accept MoDOT’s offer for my land?
- Should I assume the offer for my property is fair?
- How will the value of my property be calculated?
- Should I obtain my own appraisal?
- How will the taking impact my business?
- Will condemnation affect my mortgage or property taxes?
