As the nation’s supply of natural gas increases, more utility infrastructure is needed for transport. Companies seeking access to the property of landowners to construct pipeline infrastructure have increased. The meeting will discuss the easement offer and contract in layman’s language, the different types of compensation for landowners and how compensation is determined. The valuation of land before and after an easement is granted and the appraisal process will be covered. Landowner rights and the eminent domain and condemnation process will be presented. A MSU Extension farm business management educator, an appraiser and an attorney will be the speakers. All have extensive experience in easements.
