West End and Valley Mede Acquisition Timeline

The Ball Administration understands the importance of transparency and predictability when it comes to all aspects of government. This is especially true when dealing with sensitive situations, such as acquiring someone's home.

To that end, the following list represents an estimated timeline for when the county would like to acquire properties in the West End and Valley Mede. These properties are planned for acquisition either for flood mitigation or public safety purposes. It is important to note that acquisitions are dependent upon available funding, as well as an agreement of a purchase price between the county and property owner. All purchase prices will be based upon pre-May 2018 flood values as deemed by an appraiser hired by the county.

If your house is on the list for fiscal year 2020 and you have not yet been contacted by the Department of Public Works, someone will be reaching out to you in the coming weeks.
