Eminent domain rally set for Westville: Courier Post (Cherry Hill NJ), 6/21/06

A rally protesting the government's right to seize property for public use is planned Friday afternoon in Westville [NJ].

The grass-roots group, We The People of Westville, is urging homeowners, tenants and business-people to take a stand against eminent domain. The one-hour rally starts at 4 p.m. in the parking lot of Grabbe's Seafood Restaurant at 19 Delsea Drive.

Fieldstone Associates of Doylestown, Pa., has proposed developing upscale condominiums and retail shops along Big Timber Creek. The area targeted for development includes Grabbe's, a family-run business for 75 years, and other waterfront homes.

The plan is still in the preliminary stages and must be approved by the borough council. No vote has yet been scheduled.
