Mark Meeks, owner of Stockbridge Florist and Gifts has discovered that why he felt his business was fine the local government is not happy with it’s presence! And the city of Stockbridge, GA is attempting to condemn his shop as part of a “downtown development project”. Basically they want to replace his business with things they feel would be more profitable. His business is in fine shape and nothing is worn down. It is not something that is at all worthy of condemnation.
This particular case of eminent domain abuse may not end with the city taking the property though. Republican lawmakers in Georgia are already working to stop this kind of abuse!
Ruling Delayed on Eminent Domain Case
So if Georgia’s legislature does the good deed Mark Meeks’ current business location will be saved! It would also mean that property across the state is protected from eminent domain abuse!
