The first proposed study will document the impact of high voltage power lines by comparing acreage land sales in Pinal County, Arizona. Mr. Sanders has already completed several eminent domain appraisal cases in the area. These cases included several high voltage powerline takings. Many of these sales occurred prior to the real estate crash when many properties had increased value because of the potential highest and best use shift to residential subdivisions and supporting commercial uses.
These data will be the springboard for the anticipated project and will lead to future studies in multiple areas and different property types. The initial study is primarily single-family residential, but other uses may also be examined if the data are sufficient.
