Possible Eminent Domain Action

  • Council To Explore Eminent Domain Option On Parcel Needed For New School

    The Legislative Council is scheduled to consider and possibly endorse eminent domain options to acquire a privately owned parcel for the planned new access road for Sandy Hook School. The meeting is set for Wednesday, December 18 at 7:30 at the Municipal Center.

    According to the agenda, the council will discuss and possibly act on acquiring a parcel for the school, "including action by eminent domain."

    Town Attorney Monty Frank told The Newtown Bee that it is the council's purview to take up the action if it cannot reach an agreement through negotiation.
