Eminent Domain Meeting – Monday, December 5, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.
Midwestern State University, Dillard College of Business (Room 101) in Wichita Falls
As a landowner, your private property rights should be defended at all costs; and we are fortunate to have groups such as Texans for Property Rights and the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers leading that charge. Clay County landowners’ private property rights are being attacked by the wind farm developers. We respect other landowners’ rights to conduct operations on their land as they see fit; however, we want to stand strong against the ceding of our property rights through eminent domain to the power lines and substation infrastructure that follow wind farms. Even though a proposed wind farm might be miles from your property, you are still at risk of having power lines run across your property to connect to the power grid, which will surely devalue your most precious asset. Attend the meeting December 5th at 6:00 p.m. in Wichita Falls to learn about upcoming legislative efforts to achieve fairness in the laws that govern the use of eminent domain in Texas. Stand strong against eminent domain.
If you read nothing else, watch this video. It was shot in Canada with real people dealing with the wind turbine issues. You can put a name from Clay County on each person.
