Land owner protests eminent domain with billboard-like declaration

This is a new winkle on land-use law. And despite the blight created by the landowner’s protest sign, I wish the guy luck in his battle over eminent domain proceedings designed to transfer his land to Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Va. A conservation note: The state in which I now live, Vermont, recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of its no billboards in Vermont law. For Pennsylvanians toiling around the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton locale on Interstate 81, such a law would be a giant step toward livability. That’s why it won’ thappen in Pennsylvania.
