Is this anywhere near as real as Union Square? I mean as far as eminent domain etc.

No formal Redevelopment Plan has been proposed by the Administration regarding Ball or Magoun Square.

Also, for Magoun, changes to traffic patterns and parking systems are being revisited in the Spring that may alleviate some of the issues experienced there.

I will keep you posted on everything that happens!
