To receive full and just compensation for both the property being taken by the State and for any diminution in value caused to the remaining portion of property not being taken.
In seven cases the State initially offered a total of $563,888.40 in compensation to the owners. The final compensation totaled $1,199,400.00—a 113% increase above the State’s initial offers. Full and just Compensation in each case included not only the property taken (including the value of temporary construction easements and permanent easements for storm water retention ponds), but also the diminution in value to the remaining property – compensation that can be applied by the owners to replace lost screening trees to mitigate the project’s impact.
