No, its a blight and the owner would rather let it fall apart-a hazard-than sell it to the city. Eminent domain was made for these kinds of situations. Don't know if the owner is senile or just a selfish old goat, but its not like he didn't have the cash to maintain it-if it actually meant anything to him.

If the foundation can't afford it, why can the city , they must have extra money ( yours ) just condemn it and make him tear it down ,the city has that power to and they won't spend your money

OK...YOU RED COMMIE!!! You are a communist!

Eminent domain was NOT made for cases like this where government has the right to take a person's property because they don't like the way they take care of it. If that's the case, why don't we take a person's property if we don't like how they handle their life and think they are a bad person and social influence? You DON'T have a right to take a person's property for this.

I can't believe how many people in this country have become traitors to our Consitution or Bill of Rights. It is cowards and those that don't deserve to live in this country that are unwilling to stand up against unjust and the rights and liberties we were founded upon!

eminent domain wasnt for this kind of thing. Our city and state governments have used this in a way that would make our founding fathers turn in their graves. Stop using eminent domain to get what your supporters want.

Eminate Domain is only recognized when a city needs the ground for community development that will benefit the citizens of the area ,,
Besides , another Park wouldn't be such a bad Idea anyway,,Of coarse the taxpayers would have to maintain it...

What is the point in purchasing real estate when, considering the city/gov can steal it from you at any time under the guise of 'eminent domain'? All they have to do is say we want to economically exploit your property and then they get to steal it from you. Sickening. Frightening. Land of the Opressed.

You obviously don't know a darn thing. You must be a liberal Democrat where we owe you everything.
Tear the thing down. It is in a crime infested neighborhood. No one in their right mind would want to go down
in the ghetto at night.
Perhaps you can stop by and pick up some used needles?

To me, it sounds as though a midnight visit from a bulldozer is called for. This may be legal to use eminant domain, but is sure as hell is not the proper way.

Why are we so fascinated where ordinary people live? The government has no business confiscating/stealing this property.

How many of you actually read the article???? The plan is to turn the home into an educational center and museum, which would be for the good of the community. Hmm, sounds like "community development that would benifit the citizens of the area" to me. It is amazing how little sense of history people in this country have. It is no wonder that people from other countries look down on us. Go to Europe, they don't tear down and build new, they preserve the histroy of the country and take pride in that history. You all would tear down the Eifel Tower to put a high rise office building up, forget the fact that the history would be lost. Let the group restore the building and make it useful instead of turning it into another empty lot full of trash.

Emminent domain is to be used exclusively for projects "for the public good." Will someone explain to me how buying an apparently dilapidated house by a preservation group fits this definition?

To "Give Me A Break"

I'm about as left-leaning as one can be. Read my previous post. You are quite misinformed about what we liberals believe.
