TF City Officials Hear Complaints Over Eastland Dr. Construction
Some residents along Eastland Drive North in Twin Falls are not happy with the city right now. A meeting was held in the City Council chambers last evening to give residents and property owners a chance to weigh in on some issues in the area where the city is expanding Eastland Drive to five lanes. Residents complained about low appraisal values of their property being taken for the construction and little or no notification from the city about the construction in the first place. Many residents along that stretch of road are losing up to ten feet of their front yards and some complained they got offers for as low as 2 dollars per foot. Some of the residents told the city they will fight the issue. At the beginning of the meeting, predicting what might be about to transpire, City Manager Travis Rothweiler apologized to the gathering, telling them the city did not perform to it’s normal standards nor his.
