The Triangle Business Journal reported on December 4, 2017 that the ACP has filed its first eminent domain action in North Carolina (although the NC Department of Environmental Quality has not issued 401 water certifications yet!). “On Friday, ACP filed two suits to acquire North Carolina tracts through eminent domain, an action spokesman Aaron Ruby has called a last resort.”
Friends of Nelson urges all landowners on the proposed ACP route to retain an eminent domain lawyer. Most landowners on the ACP route in Nelson County have legal representation. If you do not, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will give you the information you need to protect yourself and your land. (And please take a look at our Eminent Domain page.) We will continue to stand up and support and back up landowners threatened by the ACP. This is not a done deal. We are still here and ready to help!
