Eminent Domain and the City of Dallas

A lot of what goes down at City Hall is determined in Dallas City Council committees. This is where items are discussed before they are moved forward to meetings of the entire Dallas City Council.

The Economic Development and Housing committee was scheduled to have a briefing on Eminent Domain today. The issues at hand were notification and the eminent domain process when the City wants land for specific uses.

Here is a copy of the PDF presentation (link). If your family owns land in Dallas, make sure that the owner’s address is current to make sure you are notified if your property is scheduled to be taken by the City.
