Kelo V. City of New London (Important Video if you live within 1/2 mile of the 101 Freeway)
AB2, SB628, are redevelopment laws that have received Governor Brown's signature. It allows eminent domain for " inefficient development" i.e. single family homes for Multi-Family homes. This will force the urbanization of Marin.
If you live within 1/2 mile of the 101 corridor or within the "urban boundary" your home is under threat of being taken by eminent domain so that new multi-family developments can be built. Planners call this "densification" of the urban footprint. In England, where this has been practiced since the 1990s they call it "cramming".
The Kelo decision is a serious misreading of the Constitution and affects EVERYONE.
