Requiem for the Dream: The Assault on Private Property in America
Citizens’ Alliance for Property Rights
Saturday, March 10, 2012 | 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM
DoubleTree Guest Suites, Southcenter
16500 Southcenter Parkway, Seattle 98188
Ever since the 2005 U.S. Supreme Court decision Kelo v. New London, most Americans have become aware that the constitutional protection of private property rights is being eroded. This full-day workshop focuses on the regulatory threat to property rights and will provide a comprehensive overview of the political forces at work, and the mechanisms which they utilize to deprive people of their property rights.
Join us for five informative presentations!
- A nationally recognized expert on government planning, economist Randal O’Toole will explain urban planning, “Smart Growth,” and how it impacts property rights, prices, and urban life in general.
- Environmental expert and licensed geologist Steve Neugebauer will explain what constitutes a “wetland,” and how various government agencies distort the definition in writing land use regulations.
- Rosa Koire, a forensic real estate appraiser and founder of Democrats Against UN Agenda 21, will discuss United Nations Agenda 21’s effect on private property.
- Scientist Ed Kilduf will describe how nearly 80% of the land in Washington State comes under total government control.
- Paul Hirsch, a lawyer and environmental scientist, will discuss the Washington State Shoreline Management Plan being proposed in Jefferson County.
