Case Study : Eminent Domain

NCDOT pays $652,000 to settle Map Act case

After nearly 20 years of waiting, the Hatcher family finally received the $652,000 in compensation from the NC Department of Transportation. The NCDOT had identified a portion of the Hatcher farmland as being in the path of the proposed Greensboro Urban Loop in a Map Act filing in 1996.

Of the 78 acres of farmland, the state went on to condemn 13 of them to build the beltway. What was once sought after land was now worth drastically less because of this eminent domain action.
