SDGE Begins Eminent Domain Proceedings

Think your property rights mean diddly squat to the power company? Think again. SDG&E has started eminent domain proceedings to force existing land holders to sell their land so SDG&E can build powerlines. Message - if you don't sell, we'll make you sell anyway. This has been on for a while; for more details, read this great article. Property owners and open-space advocates need to stick together to keep these actions from succeeding, and to keep courts from allowing them to.

Preservation of open space around San Diego enhances property values and property rights.
