Landscape Architecture and Land Planning
and Private Property Rights
If the government needs all or a portion of your property for a road improvement or other project, there are several things you should be aware of from the outset. At any given time, there are a number of governmental projects underway or planned which will require private property. The government does have the power to take private property for public use when the property is needed, whether or not the owner wants to sell. This power is often referred to as the power of eminent domain or condemnation. However, in return, the property owner is constitutionally entitled to receive just compensation. U.S. Const. Amend. V; Idaho Const. Art. I, 14.
