ACHD looks to condemn gas station for road realignment project

The Ada County Highway District wants to condemn a Jacksons Chevron location at the corner of State St. and Pierce Park Ln. to reconfigure the roadway in the area.

The highway district plans to realign Pierce Park to connect with State St. in more of a “T” configuration versus the “Y” configuration currently in place.

Highway district officials say they worked to negotiate with the owner of the land under the gas station at 6400 W. State. ACHD said it delivered an offer in May for the property.

“(Property owners) were disappointed with the offer,” the district wrote in a staff report. “They said Jackon’s told them Jackson’s had $1-million in equipment. They said they were going to hire an appraiser that is an expert in convenience store appraisals.”

ACHD said property owner Mike Victory and his Victory Trust refused its offer for the property and did not provide a counter offer. ACHD did not publicly disclose the amount of its offer.

Vote to condemn

The commission voted 4-1 in favor of the condemnation, with Jim Hansen voting against. He cited the project to revamp State St. and said the condemnation is ‘premature.’

The Ada County Assessor reports the property is worth $773,000.

The condemnation order means ACHD can forcibly take the property for what it considers fair-market value. Cases of this type often end up in litigation.

Area Chevron stations operated by Jacksons are currently in the process of rebranding to the ExtraMile name. No permits have yet been filed with the City of Boise to update this location.

This same project will impact the Plantation Golf Course, which plans to revamp some of its holes and facilities.
