In Eminent Domain Action, the Jury will Decide Issues Surrounding Dedication Requirement

City of Perris initiated an eminent domain action to take a portion of an undeveloped land for street use. For the purpose of appraising fair value of the land taken, the City assumed that City would have required property owners to dedicate a portion of their land in order to obtain City's approval on land development. The property owners challenged the City's assumption. Held: This is a matter for the jury to decide.
