The Land Use Committee Announces a Seminar on Condemnation

“What is the land use impact of a partial taking? Condemnation in a suburban and urban environment. Valuation, damages and severance impacts.”

The State has increased its available revenue for public works projects, and that almost always includes the acquisition of real property. We have not had much in the way of takings over the past 15 years, but now with enhanced revenue and a number of very large projects, that is changing.  This seminar explores the issues of takings in the suburban and urban environment, the issues of valuation, and the land use implications of dealing with a severed parcel.  These speakers are well experienced in these issues, and will be able to inform members of the Bar and planners from our local governments on these issues, how they impact revenue, and the issues of owning developed or to be developed parcels that have lost some property to a public improvement. Come hear these knowledgeable speakers on this important subject.


Our Guest Speakers will be:

Joseph Suntum, Esquire, Miller Miller & Canby

Kevin Pascale, Esquire, Rosenberg Martin Greenberg

Ryland Mitchell, CRE, MAI (Appraiser)

Janet Handy, Esquire, Deputy Counsel, State Highway Administration
