FAIRFIELD — The city will pay Pacific Gas and Electric Co. $265,858 for two acres along Peabody Road sought by Fairfield as part of its Intermodal Station Project, according to a filing in Solano County Superior Court.
The land at 3101 Peabody Road is for a road extension east of Vanderbilt Drive that would serve as a parking lot for the train station, according to the filing in the eminent domain action by the city.
George Hicks, public works director for Fairfield, said the legal action sounds confrontational, but that it was a “friendly filing.”
The land was appraised at $265,858.
A stipulation for entry of judgment was filed in May about the agreement for the land sale. A PG&E spokeswoman confirmed the property sale, but declined to comment about it Wednesday.
A separate project labor agreement for the train station project won unanimous Fairfield City Council approval Tuesday.
