Appraisal, Acquisition & Relocation System (AARS) REAL ESTATE SECTION LOUISIANA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION AND DEVELOPMENT
Challenges Complex environment of any right of way organization. Real Estate activities Ownership-based rather than Parcel-based – unique to Louisiana.
Ownerships vs. Parcels OWNERSHIP: A group of all parcels on a project that have the same owners in the same percentage. An Ownership can have 1 or more parcels. EXAMPLE This ownership consists of Parcels 06-05, 06-06, 08-01, 09-02,12-01,13-01, and 14-01.
Multiple Owners Ownership Parcels: 06-01, 9-05, 10-01, 10-01-C-1 Multiple Owners with various percentages of ownership: Adrianne Lynn 16.67000% Charles Richard Jones6.67000% Marsha June Jones16.66000% Charlotte Lynn Smith4.17000% James Edward III 4.17000% Clarrissa J. Holmes 37.50000% John Charles 14.16 000%

Antiquated System In complex ownerships, required redundant entries No way to update to reflect changes in process Consultants had to come to DOTD office to enter data. Didn’t track needed information, such as counter offers, administrative settlements, additional court awards, etc. RAMS - was developed in the ’80’s
Flat Table vs Relational Database Legacy System built around a flat table database. Complexity required relational database - Many linked tables to speed processing and eliminate redundant entries. PROJECT OWNERSHIPS PARCELS OWNERS IMPROVEMENTS PAYMENTS DISPLACEES DISPOSAL BIDSPAYMENTSEXPROPRIATION COUNTER OFFERS NEGOTIATIONS
Immediate Objectives of New System Allow capture of all necessary information without redundant entries. Have built-in reminders Allow consultants to make entries at their own work places. Easy to deploy and maintain.
