Eminent domain : it’s not just for the poor and middle class anymore. A quote:

The mayor even went on television twice recently to brag about his plan. He told WNBC reporter Greg Cergol that turning Deepdale [me: a currently private golf club] into “a village golf course exclusively for the village residents” would be a nice “amenity” for them. According to the reporter, the mayor explained that “his goal” is “to turn Deepdale into a private club for his village’s 5,000 residents.” And he told Channel 12’s Bill Mooney that his plan would “increase property values”–private property values–in North Hills.
