This Department and VTA legal counsel, with assistance from consulting firms specializing in appraisal, acquisition, and relocation, procure all property rights needed for VTA’s various capital projects. All appraisal, acquisition and relocation activities follow the Federal Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 as amended, the California Government Code and the California Code of Regulations.
