Will the Town use eminent domain to take my property?

Individual members of the Town Council have stated they will not support using eminent domain to buy property for purely economic development reasons. This redevelopment plan has significant public work that needs to be completed whether there is private development or not. These public works include:

  • Creation of New Amenities Such as Trails and Green Spaces
  • Parking Facilities
  • Sidewalks
  • Storm Drainage
  • Streets
  • Water and Sewer Utilities

The Town will use all reasonable efforts to obtain the property required for these public improvements.
