Yes This Can Happen in NH
Granite State Futures Blog ^ | August 12, 2013 | Tom DeWeese

Jennie Granato, a resident and tax-paying citizen of Montgomery County, Ohio, has found herself without a front yard and very little to show for it.

Because the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC), as part of a $5M bike path extension, has begun to seize up private property for their “essential” project, including almost the entirety of Miss Granato’s front lawn.

The bike path scam is just another way of shoveling millions of taxpayer dollars into the pockets of insiders, and as an added bonus they get to taser property rights.

Personally if that happened to me the bike path would suffer damage in excess of what my front yard was worth.

I don’t get how this stuff happens in the US, but does not happen in Canada.

Really, what is it about your politics that allow this to happen?

Insanity.

This is theft, pure and simple.

Whatever happened to that “Free State Project”, I guess they are all too busy holding their dope-a-thons in Keane to do anything useful?

Most people are not paying attention. And our courts are now over-run with leftist judges, so going to court might not result in a good outcome. And the leftists have the deep pockets to fight it through the court system. If this family fought, they might win, but they’d probably lose everything anyway. Pretty unbelievable, I know!

I was raised believing that “Thou shalt not steal” was a direct commandment from God to us - because that is exactly where it came from. I find this government action reprehensible. Apparently, the liberals are too taken with their own cleverness and self-proclaimed superiority to recognize evil when it’s in their own actions. This disgusts me. If liberals respected the rule of law, they would at least defer to “nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation”, but they don’t care about anything beyond their personal power and vested interests. Just compensation is not the difference between a half-acre lot and a quarter acre lot, it’s the difference between a usable lot with a home and a lot with no peace and no sense of privacy.

The land was stolen, and I would do everything within the law (and perhaps beyond that threshold) to make that bike path unpleasant and unusable if they did this to my land or to a friend’s land. This is not the action of a legitimate government, and we have no moral obligation to defer to illegitimate actions by the big government liberal machine.

Aren’t there laws about now allowing a residence or building to be X feet from property lines and roadways? I’d think 7 feet would be too close for them to legal construct the bike path from her front door. Of course, they’ll just declare her house too close to their bike path and demand she tear it down.

If it is still her property, then she can legally block off the path and deny access to her property.

Put up a booth and charge a toll.

That is what the Government in Maryland would do.

I might have a few accidents returning bottles. These accidents might result in a bunch of broken glass shards all over the bike path. I might even spill a qt of corn oil near the broken glass. This might happen a lot. I’m clumsy that way.

Something very similar was done in our town. Usually there’s an 8 foot requirement, but the county essentially planted a bike path right in front of several homes. I don’t know if anyone tried to stop it. That takes money & most folks don’t have the ability for a protracted fight with their local government.

I’d like to be on the Agenda 21 ping list, if there is one.

Google map of this house.

First, that house is already (#$(@ close to the road.

Second the road is being widened in addition to the bike path. I think the bike path is being used to focus public anger a this in a way which a road expansion wouldn't.

Third, I have no idea why they can't expand to the south because there's a lot more room. I can only figure that there must be some pipes they don't want to build the road over.

It’s a 150 year old farm. I wonder what was there first - the home or the road?

Since the road is named after the original farm owner (Austin) I wouldn't be surprised that they were about the same time, but the road was probably a narrow dirt path at the time. A lot of old farmhouses were built close to the road like that to allow maximum plowing area in the back. They can make drives on some weaving country roads a little ... exciting.

Sometimes when the road is even closer the county will buy and tear down the house or relocate the house on a new foundation to make room.

Please also see www.granitestatefutures.org (note that this is the opposition’s website so it has an ‘s’ on the URL, not the real site which does not)

This is Agenda 21, Sustainable Communities Initiatives made possibly by HUD grants. YOUR TOWN IS NOT EXEMPT. It is a plan to completely remake government by overriding local control with ‘regional’ boards of unelected urbanists.

It is the soviet system.

Please if you listen to nothing else, hear Andres Duany state that it is fascism but it works (on the blog) and that we are all about the UN’s ‘regions’ now.

Some of us have been warning against this for years. Only now that it is in our backyards, are people waking up.

In NH, Granite State Future (no ‘s’, is the proper name for the program) is no different than Plan Bay Area being fought by Rosa Koire or the Seven50 Plan in Florida.

Find out what plans are going on in your state by looking up your regional planning commissions websites.

But it’s the same everywhere. GSF is the NH program, Ohio has one with a different name, but it’s all the same, coming from the Fed.

Some are helping, a lot.. Many are not as they are likely not yet property owners.

BTW, if you get on the GSF(s) mailing list you’ll see the very same things as what is going on in your town. You’ll get an education.

Here is the archive. http://us4.campaign-archive2.com/home/?u=d84311fa3a3684e312a8f6c37&id=97d090acbb
