Better Pleasant: Trustees vote to impose eminent domain Sept. 24

On Monday, September 24, 2018 at 6:30 pm, the Village of Mt. Pleasant Board of Trustees will discuss and take possible action in the award of damages for nine parcels of land in the Foxconn zone.

Five parcels are being challenged by three owners in Racine County Court. The owners contest the village’s authority to take their property under eminent domain for road construction and that the village is taking far more land than is necessary for road construction – which in one case is already completed – to convey to Foxconn
All three owners face losing their homes, barns and in one case, their business. The property owners have confirmed they will be attending Monday’s Village Board meeting.
The village has notified these property owners that they already own the land and homes, and they have been notified they must vacate the premises on or before November 19, 2018 – three days before Thanksgiving.
Court filings from each case is attached below.
