Analysis:

The City of Leesburg needs a strip of property on the border of Walling Enterprises, Inc. to realign the trail so it does not bisect the Walling’s land.  The City  agreed to give the Wallings a  portion of abandoned railroad right-of-way in return for a similar strip of property on the border of their property. (that part of the abandoned ACL Railroad lying in the north ½ of the SE ¼ of Section 22, Township 19 South, Range 24 East in Lake County, Florida).
