The Daily Press reports that the church will receive a total settlement of $2.5 million for the partial condemnation, which affects access to the property as well as reducing available parking spaces.

In Ontario, the City Council voted on a resolution to initiate eminent domain proceedings against several businesses for a project that is intended to improve traffic conditions at a rail crossing on Milliken Avenue. The city is seeking easements on two businesses, including a distribution center for Sears and Kmart stores. The Daily Bulletin provides this description of the project:

“The Milliken grade separation will eliminate the at-grade crossing by elevating the thoroughfare over the trains adjacent to Mission. As part of the project the city is seeking the easements to relocate Southern California Edison poles.”
