UPDATE: Bill Approved to Limit Eminent Domain by Property Owners' Improvement Districts

March 6, 2013

 

Representative Kim Hammer's bill (now Act 290) to curtail the use of eminent domain and condemnation by Property Owners' Improvement Districts has passed the Arkansas House and Senate. Essentially, the new eminent domain law removes the ability for property owners' improvement districts to use eminent domain and condemnation to acquire rights-of-way outside of the district's boundaries.

Legislation to Limit Eminent Domain by Property Owners' Improvement Districts

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.
