The county may seek legal action against recalcitrant Collin County landowners in order to develop the northern section of the Outer Loop toll road.
In a letter to the commissioners, Rubin Delgado, the County's Director of Engineering notes that in attempting to gather information to appraise and acquire right of way, some property owners will not grant the county entry to their land. His letter notes that, "as discussed previously, it appears that legal action will be required in order to secure the right-of-entry needed".
While Mr. Delgado's letter does not ask for condemnation of the land needed by Eminent Domain, the legal actions by the county could certainly presage the forcible taking of land for the road.
The county is working to purchase or otherwise obtain the needed land for the northern portion of the controversial Outer Loop in Anna and Melissa that runs from US 75 to SH 121. County officials have publicly stated that the Outer Loop will most probably be a toll road. Many also believe the Loop is destined to become a portion of the Trans-Texas Corridor.
The Commissioners Court is scheduled to discuss and act on Outer Loop property acquisition at its scheduled meeting on January 8th.
