INDOT Releases Eminent Domain Claim Over Wilson Farm Market
The Indiana Department of Transportation’s withdrawal of an eminent domain claim over Wilson Farm Market (Hamilton County) was extremely well received and decidedly uncommon. Landowners have little recourse when some/all of their property is taken through eminent domain, but they are entitled to “just” compensation.
To calculate this, often the government will contract an appraiser for a drive-by inspection and evaluation of public records. Not surprisingly, the resulting financial offer extended to a property owner is not what they’d consider “just.” These offers may also represent current value, but not take into consideration the comprehensive impact or long-term effects on a business’s operations or home’s resale value.
