Seattle’s city council voted unanimously Monday  to use eminent domain to take private property. They say they must seize the private property, which is currently being used as a parking lot, in order to turn it into … a parking lot. (Here is the link to the original notice ). Local station Q13Foxnews discussed this story here .
In addition to eminent domain abuse, the City of Seattle has recently been in the news for hiding public records , and sinking the farm boat.  The common thread among all three of these stories is that, in Seattle, central planning takes priority over people . In this case, they decided it was critically important to seize a parking lot from its 103-year-old owner so that it can be a parking lot. At least this is their stated justification.
