The City Council has authority under provisions of the City Charter and applicable <br />state law to institute proceedings in eminent domain for the acquisition by condemnation of private <br />property for public purposes, including street and stormwater improvement projects. <br /> <br /> B. The City Council has approved the design concept for improvements to existing <br />transportation infrastructure in the vicinity of the new Federal Courthouse consisting of the <br />construction of a new roadway and upgrading the existing roadway; stormwater improvements; <br />installation of traffic signals, lighting, sidewalks and paths, street trees and other landscaping; <br />railroad crossing improvements; and under-grounding of some utilities. <br /> <br /> C. City staff has contacted all of the affected property owners to discuss the need to <br />obtain the necessary right of way needed to make the improvements. All property owners indicated <br />a willingness to work with the City. All of the right of way needed for construction of the <br />improvements is described on Exhibit A attached hereto. <br /> <br /> D.
