Eminent domain opponents to turn out — The Cincinnati Post, 12/28/04

Members of Citizens for a Better Norwood and Citizens Against Eminent Domain Abuse plan to turn out at a Norwood City Council meeting tonight to oppose controversial changes to a city ordinance under consideration that would replace an existing chapter of the city code dealing with urban renewal. Proposed changes to the ordinance includes a change in the definition of "blight," which opposition groups claim could make it easier for the city to use eminent domain proceedings to acquire property.

Citizens for a Better Norwood has maintained that the city abused its eminent domain powers for the Rookwood Exchange project.

The Norwood City Council meeting is set for 7:30 p.m. at the city building, 4645 Montgomery Road.
