SLO inn owners seek relocation costs in eminent domain decision: St Louis Obispo CA Tribune, 11/10/06

By Sally Connell

Owners of the Rose Garden Inn on Calle Joaquin in south San Luis Obispo are asking the city for relocation costs, arguing that they are forced to move their hotel office because of a realignment of the road by the city.

The city has brought an eminent domain proceeding in Superior Court to acquire a small unoccupied portion of the inn’s property on what will be the new alignment of the street. But the inn’s owners are arguing for relocation expenses for the office since they will have to move it to the new street. City staff has proposed rejecting the request for relocation expenses.
