News release

If you are convinced that urban renewal can’t take place without using eminent domain to seize homes, small businesses, family farms and places of worship from unwilling sellers, this report is a must read!

Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle shares his expertise in economic redevelopment in a report released this week. The report, the second in a series published by the Institute for Justice, is titled, “Development Without Eminent Domain: Foundation of Freedom Inspires Urban Growth” and explains how “Anaheim’s leadership brought economic vibrancy to Anaheim without resorting to any takings of private property.”

Pringle explains in the report, “my City Council colleagues and I decided that we would not agree to any development plan that proposed the use of eminent domain.” As a result, “the area is blossoming with more economic activity than ever imagined.”
