City Approves Expropriation Of Land On Cabana Rd.

The Cabana Rd. widening project is another step forward.

The city is moving ahead with expropriation plans for several properties between Howard Ave. and Provincial Rd.

Mayor Drew Dilkens says only sections of the properties are needed and negotiations will now begin with the owners. "Those who are losing slivers of the front of their land, there are cash that goes from the city to them, it's all part of the cost of the budget for the project and this is just very typical, there's nothing unusual with this."

Dilkens also says landowners will be fairly compensated.

Seven are affected at this stage of the project.
