Background Discussion

The Ellenton Gillette Road Functional Improvement Project from U.S. 301 to Moccasin Wallow Road was approved in the FY 2013-2017 CIP 309-6084560.

Parcel 4 is improved with a single-family residence located at 7301 36th Avenue East.  The project requires a partial take of 4,605 square feet.  On June 11, 2015, Appraiser Steve Cross, SR/WA, of RTD Group, LLC, determined the value of the area for acquisition at $8,150.00. The appraisal value detail consisted of $2,750.00 for the land and $5,400.00 for improvements to include asphalt drive and hedge landscaping.

The homeowners were worried the County's third party contracted acquisition agent and appraisal did not fully address their concerns and no agreement was reached between the parties.  Property Acquisition contacted the owners directly to resolve these outstanding concerns and based upon a site visit with Mr. Shaer their concerns were valid. 

A settlement was reached at $25,000.00 for a partial property take to include the compensation for landscape hedge and eliminates additional costs for litigation fees or expert fees associated with this agreement.
