Unless it’s for a known safety reason, like building a dam, the government should not be able to seize private property against the wishes of the landowner. Economic gain for a company should not be a reason. I know eminent domain was used by the current President to build a casino in Atlantic City, and the casino went into bankruptcy, leaving the local government with a useless property while the previous landowners were forced out. A sad situation all around. This should not be repeated.
