The City of Hartford has used its power of eminent domain to assemble land for a stadium. The Hartford City Council approved a $350 million plan to build a minor league baseball stadium for the New Britain Rock Cats. However, it does not own all of the land necessary for the stadium. The City has filed an action to take 14 properties for $1.98 million. The city would then enter into a 99-year lease with the stadium’s developers, who would likely use that land for retail, housing, and other uses.
