Baseball Fields & Swimming Pool

The Desert Sun

For the second time in the 18 years since the controversial John Nobles Ranch neighborhood was razed, the city may pursue eminent domain for a major city project other than road widening.

With more than a third of the city's burgeoning population under 18, according to the U.S Census Bureau, Indio officials want to provide more recreation for youths and plan to build a 45-acre sports complex that would feature an Olympic-size pool and four full-sized baseball diamonds.

The city is gearing up for eminent domain proceedings to make the park a reality for its 66,000 residents, which city officials say could reach 131,000 within five years.

Eminent domain is the right of a government agency to claim and buy private property for public use."
Here again eminent domain is referred to as a government right. Government doesn't have rights. People have rights. Government has the power of eminent domain to take private property from people.
