Families Wait to Hear Home Status in Asheboro Bypass Project
This recent story featuring Henson & Fuerst, P.A. clients shows the emotional toll and cost that many land owners struggle with in land condemnation cases.
According to the story on MyFox8.com:
A Randolph County couple is waiting to hear whether they will have to give up their home as part of the construction of the U.S. 64 Asheboro Bypass project.
The goal of the new road is to make travel safer and relieve traffic congestion.
Chuck and Ann LaPrade started building their unique house in 1988. It is built into the side of a mountain on their farm property and Ann says it’s one of the most unique homes in the state.
“It’s under three feet of dirt. We still remember building the home with our own hands. Our children helped. Eventually, our children were both married on our property and we imagine them one day having this home, and our grandchildren having this home.”
Progress is good, but when residents are forced from their homes, it can feel unnecessary and unfair. Sometimes, these cases drag on for many years, as local land owners, communities and governments confront the NC DOT and its power to take land to build new roadways, leaving everyone in a legal limbo.
