Former Windham landowner awarded $13.5m in eminent domain case
Wolters owned three parcels totaling 62 acres near Exit 3 between the northbound and southbound lanes of the turnpike. He had at one time proposed a lifestyle mall on the land, with stores or retail outlets centered around an outdoor park. The plans were never presented to the town.
When he filed his petition in Rockingham County Superior Court, Wolters did not seek a set amount of money for the three parcels and instead left that for the court to decide. A jury awarded him $13.5 million in December 2013 after a two-week trial.
The state used 30 acres for the expansion project.
The council meets at 10 a.m. today in Executive Council Chambers in the State House.
