    Damn NIMBY people on the 405 are requesting full takes as slivers of the highly sloped backyards are needed. The a part take is $50,000 (land, landscaping, sprinkler, fence) while a full take is $1,000,000 (whole lot and house). As a tax payer I am outraged that Caltrans and Metro are not safe guarding our tax dollars. The government should condemn on just the part needed.
