    Many states passed prohibiting the use of eminent domain justified by "blight" determinations, and some prohibit eminent foaming or economic development.

    Eminent domain is based on a determination of needing the land for a public purpose. Post-Kelo, states changed what is included.

    The diarist included the note that said eminent domain is not legal in NJ for the proposed project, I.e., is not an issue.
