Impact of Kelo

More bad news in the wake of Kelo:
"A sad day for anybody that owns property anywhere in the
country."

That's how Ardmore business owner Scott Mahan described June 24, the day the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in a closely watched eminent-domain appeal.For Mahan and several other property and businesses owners on Lancaster Avenue potentially targeted for demolition, and for township
residents who join them in opposing Lower Merion's plan for redeveloping downtown Ardmore, the 5-4 decision in the case of Kelo vs. The City of New London was unquestionably a blow.
