The Columbiana County Park District continues the agenda (21) to stifle free market enterprise and end private property rights.
Stated in The Review article titled "Park wants abandoned railway as part of trail" on Sunday, Dec. 9, 2012, the last two paragraphs exposes the ulterior motive for these unelected governmental officials. The Park District will deny access or right of way to any business they categorizes as dirty rotten pollutors.
The more abandoned railway acquired the more impenetrable barriers they can erect.
Now if your private property is adjacent to these new acquisitions and it has a nice view about it there will be a move to acquire it too. That's because the public cannot be denied access to that land, it must be shared with all, and who to better manage land than the Park District.
Better yet should your property be deemed "blighted" it could be taken from you since you don't know how to manage your private property. Either way the freedoms and rights guaranteed by the Constitution are under assault and these acquisitions of railways are no small matter.
