Urban renewal is the rcplonning and rebuilding of our Nation's cities by the federal government at the expense of the taxpayer. It is the condemnation of one man's property for resale to another -- in violation of our traditional concepts of property rights. It ii the demolition of whole areas of our cities. It il the rebuilding of cities in conformity to the schemes of federal planners, through federal finance and federal control. It threatens to end local self-government. "Som*? nf th*? fnllowlnp [« reprinted from Ufa Lin?* Vol. 5-*RO July 5, 1963" URBAN R'EN'fcWAT, LTUMN" AGING AND GROWTH COMMAND DECISION What is involved in the massive urban renewal program our Federal Government has undertaken? The steps taken in Federal Urban Renewal programs usually follow this pattern: Swn after a local government decides to accept Federal help, a local agency is formed with the power to negotiate with federal agencies. Planners are available to draw up plans. The Federal government will put onp 75'^ or 65Tc of. the money Tor ihe project depending on The si;c of the city and whether the city docs it's own planning. Then homes in the project area musl he vacated and business establishments closed down or moved lo other arras. The power of eminent domain is invoked when necessary 10 accomplish the task. Once the area is cleared, the local government takes bids and sells the land lo a "rc-devclopor". In effect he becomes Ihe new properly owner of the project: area. THE LOSS ON 7 THE TRANSACTION' -- THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT THE CLEARED LAND BRINGS WHEN RESOLD, AND THE COST OF ACQUISITION, DEMOLITION. PREPARATION FOR REUSE. PLUS ALL PROJECT OVERHEAD - IS MADE UP BY THE TA.YPAVKR. Most landowners understand EMINENT DOMAIN", hue the current planners certainly are noc invoking true eminent domain. A respected Lawyer's manual, the Blackstone Institute. Volume XI (19171 edition) says: Eminent domain is the power inherent in a sovereign stare, ro take or to authorize the taking of any property within its jurisdiction for the Public USE . . . The power to lake and wipe out of existence the homes, shops and farms of any of the people when the necessity arises is essential to the successful performance or cost of Ihe functions of government . . . hut it is a power so frauprht wirh possibilities of abuse and injustice thai the people of ;his country have been unwilling that the legislature should e.\ercise it with out restriction . , . "It is well settled that property cannot be taken by eminent domain except for public use . . . it may be laid down as a fundamental rule that it is not one of the proper functions of constitutional government to directly assist private enterprise . . . " "Many officials and civic leaders realize the serious mistake they made years a?o when they helped speculators set up so- called urban renewal program. "THEY WERE SOLD ON THE IDEA THAT URBAN RENEWAL MEANT SLUM CLEARANCE AND THE REBUILDING -AND REVITALIZING OF BLIGHTED AREAS TOO LATE OUR. HONEST CIVIC LEADERS DISCOVERED THAT TffE PLANS OF THE SPECULATORS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH SLUMS, INSTEAD THEY FOUND THAT THEY WERE HELPING BIG SYNDICATES TO SECURE VALUABLE BUILDING SITES.. Little did either the leaders or the taxpayers realize that the deceptive term Slum Clttimnce would be expanded to a City Wide Plan. "The Plan" "The Master Plan." - .
