According to a statement from Logan Darrow Clements, the proposed development, called "The Lost Liberty Hotel" will feature the "Just Desserts Café" and include a museum, open to the public, "featuring a permanent exhibit on the loss of freedom in America." Instead of a Gideon's Bible in each room, guests will receive a free copy of Ayn Rand's novel "Atlas Shrugged," the statement said. It seems that the town where Souter lives has its own Economic Development Committee with the basic purpose to: "develop strategies for economic development and redevelopment in an efficient, orderly manner; create parameters to retain and attract business development; maintain the rural character of the Town and continually seek to improve the quality of life of its residents" through two basic strategies; 1. Encourage the formation of new businesses
2. Promote tourism. Hmmm... sounds like taking Souter's family farm and giving it to a developer for a nice little resort is consistent with those two strategies and fits the "public purpose" of the Economic Development Committee.
Rightmarch.com has a suggestion for dealing with the latest Supreme Court action led by Justice David Souter that allows city governments to take land from one private owner and give it to another. They've passed along information that a contractor named Logan Darrow Clements of Freestar Media, LLC has faxed a request to the town of Weare, NH, seeking to start the application process to build a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Rd., the present location of Souter's home. The argument allegedly given by Clements for the "eminent domain action" is that his hotel would better serve the public interest, bringing economic development and higher tax revenue to Weare.
