Eminent Domain Law already being used in
The City of
Stockbridge is planning on using the new Supreme Court ruling to
“confiscate” 5 properties in Stockbridge. According to the Daily
2 of the
properties will be used for a new City Hall and park (public use);
however the other 3
properties will be resold to developers for retail development.
The strange thing about this move is that at least one of the
properties being condemned and resold is a retail property. The
Stockbridge Florist has been in business for 22 years. We guess the
developers have “better plans” than the owners of a 22 year old
business or so the city council believes. This is a scary situation
for all people that own property. The TWG is developing a
resolution to present to the BOC to prevent this type of thing from
happening in Jasper County. If you have any suggestions, please
email us at
they are against
this and it won’t happen. Let’s see what happens in our State
Legislature and in our own County.
