Following the election of a new City Council in October 2007, Mayor Dave Bronconnier tabled an ambitous $750 million plan to extend Calgary's LRT system up Bow Trail to west of Sarcee Trail. The terminus was and is the West Side Recreation Centre. After a limited discussion over a Mt. Royal College (now University) terminus being overruled, the route determination and acquisition of lands needed for the new LRT line commenced.
Chris Davis acted for a number of land owners, including physicians, a dentist, and St. Mina Coptic church. While we never encourage clients to be expropriated - it is generally an unsatisfying process dealing with expropriating authorities - successful negotiated solutions were achieved for all our clients.
