I’ve heard that the city had to use eminent domain to acquire some of the land needed for the Burroughs Creek Trail in East Lawrence. Is that true?

Yes. The city needed to acquire 38 pieces of property for the project. According to a recent city memo on the subject, the city started the eminent domain process on four pieces of property. Since beginning the process, one property owner has negotiated a sale with the city.
