On The Move - Eminent Domain Protest: Central Florida News 13, 1/16/07

An angry crowd turned out in DeBary [FL] Tuesday night to try and save their homes.

A public meeting was held to talk about plans for commuter rail. However, dozens at the meeting were more concerned about a planned Saxon Boulevard extension to get rail riders from 17-92 in DeBary to the planned station. This is because about 16 homes could be bull-dozed to make way for the new street.

When asked if Jay Stanfill was there to talk about the commuter rail or the extension, Stanfill said, “The extension because it's taking over our house."

The mayor of DeBary says he believes the eminent domain issue is a done deal and that homeowners will be displaced, even with their protests.
