Lenoir City Redevelopment, A Legal Analyses
|After a quick look through the more than thirty page "Downtown
Lenoir City Redevelopment And Urban Renewal Plan" document being
passed out by the city, it quickly becomes obvious it wasn't written for
the average person. The problem with such a document, is the danger that
people might not understand some of the legal mumbo jumbo. In fact many
times that is part of the plan. Kind of like the charter change
documents from the last Lenoir City election when the Mayor and council
managed to conceal the fact that one charter change would extend their
terms in office by eighteen months.
Fortunately, some private citizens hired an attorney to analyze the document and boil it down to what it really says. Attorney Scott Hurley has waded through the entire document and brought to light what may well be the real motives behind the Mayor's redevelopment plan. See Below.
