Highway 270 Road Widening Project in Hot Springs, AR
Public Informational Meeting: November 7, 2017
Garland County property owners who may be impacted by the Highway 270 Road Widening Project can learn about the Arkansas eminent domain process at a public informational seminar on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 at the Candlewood Suites. Homeowners, business owners, and members of the community are invited to attend this non-cost educational workshop.
The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) plans to widen approximately 3 miles of U.S. Highway 270 to four lanes, from Highway 227 to the Ouachita River in Garland County. In the first phase of this project, AHTD proposes to widen approximately 1.5 miles of Highway 270 to five lanes with bike lanes, extending from Fleetwood Drive to Highway 227.
To complete the proposed project, it is expected that private property will need to be acquired using the power of eminent domain. At this public meeting, Krause and Kinsman attorney Adam Krause will discuss the state of the Hwy 270 widening project, private property rights and the complex eminent domain process. He will also explain how working with legal counsel can help you protect your rights.
Some topics that will be covered in the workshop include:
- Can I prevent the taking of my property?
- Do I have to accept the condemning authority’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?
