This is probably already a matter of Law. The gov't originally used thgis law in ONLY extreme cases where it was necessary to tie to ends of a railroad spur together. It was NOT used by greedy developers or greedy gov't agents wanting the land for gov't use when ANOTHER property could serve just as well. Lascivious use of this law recently has turned people against it but with PROPER use ... perhaps AFTER Trump leaves office, it can be an efficient way to advance the use of a city. This law comes in handy when city limits are exceeded and more land is necessary to continue roadways in a logical manner, like NOT HAVING TO GO AROUND someone's house just bc they refuse to sell at the market value.
