Body
BACKGROUND & HISTORY:
RCTC is attempting to sell a piece of property left over after its acquisition of public right-of way for the SR91 Corridor Improvements Project. The property was located at 2270 Frontage Road and was identified as APN 102-091-020. The Final Order of Condemnation was recorded in the official records of Riverside County on July 3, 2019.

Subsequent to the recordation of the Final Order of Condemnation, RCTC merged portions of Assessor Parcel Numbers 102-091-020, 102-091-004, 102-091-005, 102-050-020 and 102-091-021. The merged parcel, Parcel Merger No. 210012, was recorded on May 10, 2021 as Document No. 2021-0287798. The APN of the merged parcel is pending.
