Rural Property Owners Fighting Eminent Domain and Land Condemnation Actions by the High Speed Train Connecting Dallas and Houston.

Rural land owners are fighting back Texas Central Partners recently filed legal procedures to take private property from rural land owners via eminent domain and condemnation. The politically connected individuals behind the project tout the real estate development the train’s path will create – which is probably true if you own land near a train stop. However, the sound of a 200-mph loud train whizzing by every 30 minutes will likely limit the future highest and best use of other land near the tracks to grazing or agriculture. Waller County Judge Trey Duhon discusses some of the shenanigans of the Texas High Speed Train project in this video interview.
