Eminent Domain Considered in Sierra Madre

New, 5 comments

Following a move to put the decision up for an April vote, Sierra Madre may become the latest city to ban eminent domain, reports the Pasadena Star-News. "The measure is modelled after one passed in the city of Yorba Linda in 2008, which prohibited eminent domain for private purposes. In 2007, Arcadia voters banned the use of eminent domain in that city's downtown redevelopment area." [Pasadena Star News]
