Property Acquisition Program
Property acquisition by the District falls into two main categories:
(1) Voluntary Acquisition, and
(2) Project Right-of-Way Acquisition.
These are two very different activities, although the processes they
follow share many similar steps. The most distinctive characteristic of
Voluntary Acquisition is just that – it is voluntary and owners may
choose to not sell their property to the District. The Project
Right-of-Way Acquisition process is used when the purchase of land is
deemed a public necessity.
