Business owner fighting eminent domain: 9news.com (Denver CO), 6/12/06

By Dan Viens

A [Sheridan CO] business owner is trying to stop the city from taking his business by eminent domain.

Richard Downey owns 'Almost Anything Stored.' It is a 16-acre storage lot on the 3800 block of Santa Fe Drive.

Sheridan Police forced the business to close last week because it's within a 300-acre area being redeveloped.

Eighteen landowners in the area have agreed to sell their properties to the city. Ten of the sites were condemned.

The land is being cleared to make room for a Target and other large retailers.
