Over the past month, we have reported on a number of potential projects involving the use of eminent domain. For anyone following these projects, here is a quick update:
- On March 19, we reported that the City of San Pablo was contemplating renewing the City's eminent domain powers for an additional 12 years while promising compliance with Proposition 99. According to a Mercury News article, this week the City postponed reaching a decision on the renewal until at least May 3.
- On March 24, we reported that the County of San Luis Obispo was contemplating authorizing eminent domain proceedings for the acquisition of property necessary for the Nipomo Willow's Road project. According to a Santa Maria Times article, this week County officials unanimously adopted a resolution of necessity authorizing the County to acquire three parcels through eminent domain.
- On March 29, we reported that the City of Pasadena was considering the use of eminent domain to acquire the historical YWCA building. According to a Los Angeles Times article, this week the City approved the use of eminent domain to acquire the building.
