A Roseland resident whose home could be among 259 parcels to be condemned under one Red Line extension plan said Wednesday she would not want to live near “screeching” trains and asked for the “formula” the CTA will use to value seized property.

Elena Calloway was among a group of Roseland residents who said they have been unable to get a straight answer from the CTA on how their homes will be valued if their property winds up being condemned.
