: "Make a deal with millionaire Wayne Mason? Why don�t we just use eminent domain to get his Beltline property?"
The person who wrote this Vent may be the stupidest person in all of Atlanta. They clearly don't own any land. Eminent domain is the best example ever of abuse of government power. Let's see... Wayne Mason is willing to give the city land for the Beltline for FREE! You don't get anything for free without giving something in return. In return he wants some zoning allowances. Not a bad deal.
But this idiot wants us to "take" the land through eminent domain. But then the city would have to PAY for that land. Eminent domain is not a license for the city to steal.
