    Senate bill 1118 would restrict the ability of third class Pennsylvania cities in their use of eminent domain. The bill was introduced as a result of the plight of Richard and Nancy Saha, who are fighting to keep their home from the City of Coatesville, which wants to turn it into a golf course. Please click on the link above to see members of the Urban Affairs Committee. They must vote the bill out of committee to allow the full House to vote. If/when they do, the bill would go to the governor, who (I believe) will sign it. Please...

    My daughter Rayna and I arrived at city hall about about 8:15 pm. We saw trucks from both the local NBC and the local Fox stations. The ABC affiliate (WPVI Channel 6) had said they would send someone, but I didn't see them. As we walked into the building, we saw Dick Saha with a group of other people, including one of his daughters, who were being interviewed by a local NBC reporter. At this meeting, the Sahas planned to present petitions from Coatesville voters. The petitions asked that the concil rescind the ordinances that condemn the Saha home in...

The meeting is on Monday July 22 at 7:30 pm at Coatesville City Hall. Please attend and show...

    COATESVILLE -- Wording changed in a controversial city ordinance authorizing the taking of private land for a public golf course sparked confrontation during a city council meeting Monday night. Those who stand to lose land through the city's use of eminent domain questioned why the changes were necessary. "It's not a matter of need. It's a matter of greed," said Dick Saha, who, along with his family, has been fighting the seizure of his farm, located in Valley Township. The revised ordinance, approved by the board 6-1, omitted a clause reading, "the City of Coatesville will not exercise the power...
