Eminent Domain Law already being used in Georgia

The City of Stockbridge is planning on using the new Supreme Court ruling to “confiscate” 5 properties in Stockbridge.  According to the Daily Herald,

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 taxpayerwatchdogs@yahoo.com.  Everyone says they are against this and it won’t happen.  Let’s see what happens in our State Legislature and in our own County.
