Eminent Domain, Kelo, and Initiative Petition #57: ABA’s new book, “Eminent Domain Use and Abuse: Kelo in Context,” has arrived. While eminent domain per se is not yet a huge land use topic in Oregon, there is an initiative that is likely to appear on the November ballot: Intiative Petition #57. You may start seeing more stories about this and other initiatives as they work their way closer to the ballot. The Elections Division has various ways, including this one, to keep us informed on what Measures make it to November. But as always when using the web, check the date of the document you are reading to make sure it is current.
