PR9.NET July 01, 2006 - New London, Conn. A new BLOG on eminent domain focusing on historic preservation, education and development has been launched. The BLOG features news, information and opinions on the sensitive topic of eminent domain & historic renewel of ancient Eastern US cities.
"Our first case in point is the New London, Connecticut touching upon the Kelo vs. City of New London Supreme Court Case" said BLOG creator Evan J. Andriopoulos. "I thought it was time to touch upon that specific case and let the people know of the "local" history of the various development proposals by the city of New London, a typical Eastern US ancient city grasping for economic lifelines to survive and alleviate the tax burden of it's citizens" - followed Andriopoulos.
The BLOG itself will focus not only on the Ft.Trumbull aka. "Kelo case" of eminent domain but on the conflict of renewel, reurbanization and reinvention of these centuries old Eastern US cities and the challenges they face to survive. The BLOG is located at http://www.onemilliondollarsforpreservation.com and is open for comments and feedback.
"Being from Southeastern Connecticut I felt it was time to give a brief historic perspective of the city and the classic challenges of these old cities attempting to stop the proverbial "bleeding" of tax dollars, citizens and business to the suburbs as well as what these cities are doing to not only stop the bleeding but bring back citizens and businesses"- followed Andriopoulos. "There are many different views on eminent domain and the Kelo vs. New London case, all in fact have tarnished the great efforts of the private citizen of New London in preserving historic buildings and creating a quality of life that is desirable for the new urbanists"- said Andriopoulos an avid supporter of preservation and history.
"I just hope the BLOG brings about a dialogue, clarification and affords a more positive view of what New London, Conn. and other old cities are trying to do to stop the bleeding"- said Andriopoulos.
