8. I will read more about it
Edited on Thu Oct-26-06 01:32 PM by Strawman
and if I'm convinced that it is needed and doesn't put an undue burden on the city to promote development and tear down abandoned houses, I might change my mind. It's a matter of balancing not wanting people to lose property to greedy developers whose projects promote a narrow private interest on the one hand and worrying on the other about people exploiting the law to hinder necessary development (and demolition) that really is in the interest of the community on the other.

I was not entirely troubled by the Supreme Court ruling on eminent domain. My immediate reaction was that maybe this could help the city deal with these people who try to stand in the way of development that is in the interest of the community at-large for their own selfish profit.
