Daniel Ware watched as workers from Hathaway Tree Service cut down his trees last June.
The trees came down on Monday morning, June 10, to make room for the city of Stewartville to extend Fourth Avenue Southeast through Ware's property.
It didn't take long for the Hathaway employees to cut down a row of four cedar trees and two 80-year-old walnut trees.
For Ware, the felling of the trees was a stark reminder that he had lost his legal battle with the city of Stewartville, which used the eminent domain process to gain access to his land.
On Friday, March 15, Olmsted County District Judge Jacob Allen issued an order granting the city's petition to acquire a 66-foot by 66-foot parcel of Ware's property through the eminent domain process.
Judge Allen's decision gives the city the go-ahead to connect the north and south portions of Fourth Avenue Southeast through the small section of Ware's property. The city sought to connect the street through Ware's land as part of its 2019 capital improvement projct to improve the 400 through 599 blocks of Fourth Avenue Southeast, the 400 block of Third Avenue Southeast, and the 300 block of Fifth Street Southeast.
Daniel Ware's legal battle with the city of Stewartville was one of the Stewartville STAR's top stories for the first half of 2019. Here, then, is a week-by-week recap of some of the other major local stories from January through June 2019...
