The Half Moon Bay City Council has agreed to pay Equilon Enterprises more than $360,000 for property taken under the city’s eminent domain authority for the Highway 92 widening project.

The settlement was announced Tuesday night by City Attorney Tony Condotti during the council’s regular public meeting.

Equilon Enterprises, which owns the Shell gas station on Highway 92, filed the civil complaint against the city back in 2005.

According to Condotti, the city’s settlement amount reflects the appraised value of the land taken to widen the road, plus about $48,000 in interest and other costs.
