NEW DIMENSIONS IN RIGHT OF WAY

THREE ASPECTS OF THE CONTROVERSY THAT ORBITS AROUND THE PUBLIC TAKING OF PROPERTY THAT DISPLACES INDIVIDUALS ARE DISCUSSED. THESE EXAMPLES WERE CHOSEN BECAUSE THEY ILLUMINATE THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE DEBATE CHALLENGES ESTABLISHED PRACTICES IN PUBLIC TAKING AND, ALSO, THEY ARE ISSUES WHERE WORKABLE SOLUTIONS CAN BE FOUND. THEY ARE: (1) THE EXTENT TO WHICH THERE SHOULD BE INCREASED LOCAL PARTICIPATION IN DECISIONS OVER PUBLIC WORKS, (2) THE EXTENT TO WHICH SINGLE PURPOSE PUBLIC WORKS SHOULD BE REPLACED BY MULTI-PURPOSE PLANNING, AND (3) THE EXTENT TO WHICH TRADITIONAL NOTIONS OF COST-BENEFIT IN EVALUATING THE MERITS OF PUBLIC WORKS THAT DISPLACE INDIVIDUALS MUST BE REVISED.
