10. Read the CRC report, now I'm definitely voting no
Edited on Thu Oct-26-06 02:22 PM by Strawman
I see this proposal as a knee jerk reaction to the Kelo case that is bad for anyone who wants to see economic development in the central city.

You never want it to be too easy to take property, especially someone's home, but this proposal goes beyond returning us to a pre-Kelo situation. It completely shifts the burden in eminent domain/condemnation cases from the property owner to the government. That has never been the case historically, even before Kelo and it's been hard enough to promote development in the city and tear down abandoned houses.

No way will I vote for that. You're voting for sprawl and crack houses if you vote yes on that.
