There are several projects that could impact landowners. The government likely will not take your land just for any purpose. Typically, the government focuses on public projects that are necessary. Projects must pass the public use test.
Here are projects that can pass the public use test:
Underground Gas Storage Projects
School and Park Projects
Army Corps Projects
After receiving notification that the government wishes to take your land for a project, consider your legal options to either determine whether retaining your property is possible or fight for the compensation you deserve.
