Land Acquisition is primarily responsible for coordinating the purchase of property for the County in association with road projects and facilities. The public often contact them for information on legal descriptions, and rights-of-way/easement locations.
They can also help identify if a road is private or public.
Land Acquisition specialists are responsible for negotiation and acquisition of all real property, permanent easements, and temporary easements. Land acquisition specialists acquire property for roadway widening and drainage projects, public libraries,
landfills, and related projects.
Land acquisition specialists review site plans and subdivision plans to ensure that adequate right-of-way is present. The proposed development is reviewed as to its location in relation to existing easements/right-of-way to ensure that no infringement
exists. This is especially important in those instances where the easement/right-of-way interest is held by the public or individuals other than the developer, and the vacating process must be followed prior to development. Land acquisition specialists
provide the public with right-of-way width and easement information, and determine whether a road is public or private.
