Eminent Domain at Issue on Virginia's Ballot
Virginia Question 1 is a ballot measure for a constitutional amendment that would limit the use of eminent domain for any economic development purposes, as well as require new types of compensation to property owners for lost access and lost profits. This amendment would make all infrastructure more expensive, argues Michael Rodriguez, AICP. It would inhibit public-private partnerships, and make projects like the DC-area Silver Line expansion to Dulles Airport more difficult.
