Eminent domain is a bully tactic. If it is to be done offer fair compensation to those who have been there and families who have been there since before Cary was Cary. I'd like to know how many of these developers and people lived in Cary prior to 1950. Then figure out how many of them would enjoy having their land fractioned and told it's worth a certain amount. If the family ever decided to sell, what would the value be now that you cut up their land? Is land that's been in your family worth what is being offered? Will they be able to sell now that their property is on a busy 5 lane thoroughfare? Is it fair to take something that is not yours? I thought that was called stealing. Even when offering a price, low ball is still considered cheating if not stealing. Imagine seeing your land used by the Town every single day for the rest of your life. Then your kids lives. You want to leave them a legacy, family property. Now it's less than what it was instead of it being what it was. What would that be worth?
I hope they can figure out "fair". Memories, lives (current and future), and property were all effected by this "recall" of property.
