The plans are in opposition to O-S-U's contention that using eminent domain was always considered a last resort. The document outlines a strategy by O-S-U and its private foundation and sets a timeline for buying properties, including using eminent domain.
But foundation Vice Present Gary Clark says the document was quickly dismissed because it was too aggressive.
Controversy erupted in November after O-S-U's consultant told owners their property would be bought by June first, using eminent domain if necessary.
Since then, O-S-U officials have described the comments as miscommunication and say eminent domain always was considered a last option.
Clark says eminent domain was mentioned as a possible boost to rental property owners who could avoid capital-gains taxes if they sell under the threat of eminent domain and reinvest the money in similar rental property within three years.
