City officials in Cumberland, MD are tearing down our our neighborhood to build a chain restaurant and a parking lot. But a dozen of us still live here – and our homes are not for sale. Our houses are more than structures—they are our homes. Nothing can replace the memories and the love we have created in them.
We are excited to share a new short documentary with you that tells the story of our homes, why we love them so much, and what the threat of having them taken away feels like.
Please, like and share our video. Urge officials to disavow the use of eminent domain for private development.
Mayor Brian Grim says that the project is moving forward. He repeatedly says that he doesn’t “intend” to use eminent domain, but that is the only way he is going to get our homes. His intentions are no guarantee that our homes are safe.
We came together to form the Save Our Homes Alliance, dedicated to helping those residents who want to remain in their homes. We oppose eminent domain abuse for private development and demand our right to be left alone and to pursue our American Dream.
Tell the Mayor to take his bulldozers somewhere else!
