Eminent Domain Consultant Spearheads Free Portland-Milwaukie, Oregon Workshop Featuring Land Use Attorney Guest Speakers

Martyn L. Daniel of Martyn Daniel LLC, Bothell, WA, Eminent Domain and Business Relocation Consultant will present a free 2-hour workshop on June 14th, 2011 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Milwaukie Center, Milwaukie, OR.

Daniel will discuss the rights and reimbursement benefits for those citizens affected by the Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail and Columbia River Crossing projects.

Special guest speakers will include prominent Lake Oswego, OR Land Use and Eminent Domain Attorneys, Neil N. Olsen and Jim Zupancic of Zupancic Rathbone Law Group whose topics will review the legal rights of those affected by the TriMet mega-transportation plan.

The Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Project will create a light rail alignment that travels 7.3 miles, connecting Portland State University in downtown Portland, inner Southeast Portland, Milwaukie and north Clackamas County.

Eminent domain will affect a number of private and commercial properties which must be acquired to complete the right of way for Trimet’s light rail project.

In an April 26th, 2011 Daily Journal of Commerce article authored by Zupancic and Olsen titled,"Portland-Milwaukie light-rail ‘mega project’ moves forward" the attorneys state, “Armed with more than $200 million in property acquisition money, TriMet will acquire by agreement or condemnation more than 200 properties or parts of properties for the project’s right-of-way and other purposes. These acquisitions or takings will displace approximately 20 homeowners and more than 60 businesses.”

The attorneys further state, “As the project moves forward, and property acquisitions and takings continue, business owners will not only be wrestling with TriMet over the correct valuation of their real property, but also be facing fundamental challenges to the continued viability of their businesses.”

Martyn Daniel adds, “I’ve received a number of citizen questions regarding valuation of property and how to ensure that relocation claims will be approved that we decided to combine our efforts to spread some light on the impending eminent domain process.”

The public is invited to attend this free event.

Topics will include:

  •     Do you know your rights as a business or property owner?
  •     Do you have concerns regarding relocation reimbursements and property takings?
  •     Did you know that relocation benefits may be available to you?
  •     Did you know how to find hidden and often overlooked relocation costs?
  •     Learn how to turn denied claims into approved claims.
  •     Will you know how to analyze your property offer?
  •     Do you know how to respond to your property offer?
  •     What can you do if you do not agree with the offer you have received?

Registration is required by June 12th, 2011. A Question and Answer session will be offered at the end of the workshop.
