§ 27-1
Exercise of power of eminent domain. 

§ 27-2
Payment of reasonable value of property. 

The Borough of North Arlington shall not use the power of eminent domain to take property which is residential property under any circumstances unless it is absolutely necessary to transfer the property for direct public purposes such as the need for the Borough to construct schools, sewer, water, sidewalks and other public easements which are necessary for the public good of the Borough, and where there is no other available land for the specific purpose of making land available for that public use.

In no event, even under the most extraordinary circumstances, shall the Borough attempt to take anyone's property, residential or otherwise, without paying the owner the reasonable value of that property.
