High Speed Rail & Eminent Domain: What do you stand to lose? Burlingame community meeting July 14th

High Speed Rail & Eminent Domain
What do you stand to lose?


The following as provided by the City of Burlingame e-newsletter.  If you live on The Peninsula or near Caltrain & haven't been following this project (especially if you own property in San Mateo or Santa Clara County), here is your chance to stay in the loop.
This is one of several meetings that communities along the train corridor are hosting.

If you think community involvement doesn't make a difference, here is the most recent battle neighbors won when the City of San Mateo was proposing a full interchange in a residential area at the Burlingame/San Mateo border:  http://www.smdailyjournal.com/article_preview.php?id=71176&eddate=02/21/2007

Date: 7/14/2010 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location: Burlingame Public Library, Lane Room
480 Primrose Road
Burlingame, California 94010

The Community Coalition on High Speed Rail (CC-HSR) will present an informational program on High Speed Rail and Eminent Domain. You're invited! As many of you know, the California High Speed Rail Authority is proposing to build an elevated structure between San Jose and San Francisco along the present Caltrain corridor.

If that proposal comes to pass (and it's not a "done deal" yet, and CC-HSR and other groups are fighting it), the Authority will need to take property from private parties along portions of the corridor. Some takings will be permanent but others will be for construction purposes only. In either event, these takings will have a significant impact on Peninsula homes and businesses.

Eminent domain attorney Andrew J. Turner, Turner & Turner, P.C., will be our guest speaker. Mr. Turner will provide a brief overview of the eminent domain laws as they relate to residential and commercial properties in California. In addition, Gary A. Patton, Of Counsel, Wittwer & Parkin, LLP, will provide updates on the Community Coalition's efforts to force the Authority to 'do it right' or not to do it at all.

Keep up the good fight.  There's a group of nuts who think rural N H needs passenger rail, then HSR.  We may be fighting this battle some day.  We wish you the best.
