More Eminent Domain Abuse in New Jersey
Officials in Bayonne, New Jersey, are looking forward to using eminent domain to construct a shopping center.
[Bayonne Local Redevelopment Authority Executive Director Nancy] Kist said that Cameron wants to buy a vacant, 14-acre, contaminated parcel from AGC, a subsidiary of the Japanese-owned Asahi Glass. She said that land is targeted by Cameron for "several anchor tenants – big box stores."
Kist said the BLRA won't wait much longer for an amicable resolution.
"We expect that Cameron will continue to negotiate in good faith (with AGC), but . this is too important a project not to use eminent domain when we're talking about the future of an environmentally compromised vacant piece of land," Kist said.
