A Chino dairy family may soon receive $48 million for most of their 58-acres of land that they claimed San Bernadino County has turned into a runway protection zone for the Chino airport.
According to the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, the lawsuit, which went into private arbitration, claimed that the county had over the past 25 years, turned most of the land owned since the 1960s by Jim and Annie Nyenhuis into a no-build zone without compensation.
One of the few remaining Chino dairy farms after an influx in urban sprawl, the couple immigrated from Holland and worked their way through the California dairy industry before settling in Chino and raising their eight children.
The award which is not final includes the land value, legal costs, and relocation money for the Nyenhuis family.
