Denver’s Regional Transportation District (RTD) says it needs to condemn 56 properties in northeast Denver for light-rail expansion. Maybe we can hope RTD has learned some lessons from arousing the ire of property owners on the west side of Denver. The stories of Daniel Gallegos, Kim Snyder, Galen Foster, and others should be instructive.
But don’t hold your breath. Residents who may be affected by RTD’s latest expansion should empower themselves by checking out the resources provided by the Independence Institute’s Property Rights Project.
