THE NEW LAND ACQUISITION LAW OF MARYLAND

A NEW LAND ACQUISITION LAW WAS ENACTED BY THE MARYLAND LEGISLATURE IN ITS 1956 SESSION TO TRY TO ELIMINATE LAND SPECULATION IN THE FACE OF HIGHWAY PROJECTS BY FREEZING LAND VALUES AND BY DIRECTING THAT THE TENTATIVE PLOTS AND PLANS ARE NOT TO BE MATTERS OF PUBLIC INFORMATION. IT SETS UP PROVISIONS WHEREBY RIGHT-OF-WAY FOR AN ENTIRE PROJECT IS MADE AVAILABLE FOR CONSTRUCTION PURPOSES AT ONCE. THE LAW ADDS ELEVEN NEW SECTIONS TO THE EXISTING CONDEMNATION LAW. THE ACT IS PRESENTED AND THE RESULTS ARE DISCUSSED OF THE FIRST SIX MONTHS' EXPERIENCE WITH THE NEW ACT.
