Bill Filed to Limit Eminent Domain by Property Owners' Improvement Districts

February 12, 2013

 

Representative Kim Hammer (R) from Benton, Arkansas filed a bill to curtail the use of Eminent Domain law by Property Owners' Improvement Districts. Essentially the bill removes the ability for the Districts to use eminent domain and condemnation to acquire rights-of-way for the District. The bill would continue to allow the Districts to use eminent domain for the purpose of condemning water and sewer utilities located within the District's boundaries.

For some background on why Representative Hammer filed the proposed eminent domain law, click the link below to review a story published by KATV in its "7 On Your Side" segment:

The bill will be taken up by the Arkansas House Judiciary Committee today at 10:00 a.m..

Arkansas Eminent Domain Lawyers, Moffitt & Phillips, supports this legislation because it protects private property ownership, prevents Property Owners' Improvement Districts from shifting the financial burden of development to adjacent landowners, and is an attempt to stop eminent domain abuse in Arkansas.
