Eminent Domain


Their Story Started Very Early as they set-out to label the Columbia Lafayette Neighbor as "blighted". Actually newspaper images and just one word wasn't enough, as it became "Crushing Blight" and "Functionally Obsolete" in their MV500 Bid For $500 Million.

You see, blight is an important word for "Yes Hospital Downtown" folks. This as "blight" is the watchword for forward thinking governments who seek to invoke "Eminent Domain".

December 30, 2018 - Is your City of Utica property next? We ask as today's UticaOD opinion states "more parking spaces are required downtown" in their opinion piece titled, OUR VIEW: Downtown Parking Must Be Addressed.

With Utica's Mayor, hey you just never know where you stand...

Their Downtown Utica Hospital Concept is bad, and plainly wrong. Just like today's UticaOD opinion piece, which we discuss here; #NoHospitalDowntown Reviews UticaOD Opinion on Downtown Parking.

"That's still on target for the fall, maybe September, Octoberish is the last date we have on the SEQR process. The SEQR gets completed and then we will be in a position that if we need to exercise eminent domain, we will be exercising eminent domain at that point in time."

Our Hospitals, the City of Utica, and Oneida County, have access to a 64-acre hospital campus Just 1-3/4 miles away at the "Oneida County Medical District". At the same time, the targeted neighborhood is not as blight-ridden as they say and turning it into a large non-taxable, privately-owned, hospital district doesn't generate wealth.

Expelling numerous non-profits and tax-producing businesses will not stand in the courts, and throughout downtown the city has many examples of old broken buildings being redeveloped - even the mayor brags of Utica's successes! Many great reasons why residents want a New hospital Built at St. Luke's! An equal number of reasons why Downtown Is Wrong.
