More than 125 North Carolina landowners have filed their inverse condemnation claims against the federal government. These landowners are seeking compensation for the taking of their property for the City of Shelby rail-trail conversion. For many properties, the government has agreed the railroad only acquired an easement limited to railroad purposes. This will help us resolve the case in an expedited manner. We will be holding meetings with affected landowners on Tuesday, September 26 at the LeGrand Center in Shelby, NC. Any landowners who are not already represented by counsel are encouraged to attend these meetings or contact Arent Fox.
