    Eminent domain!
    City sues for use of a mountain road of a Fundamentalist Baptist church camp:

    Denver sues Beth Eden Baptist Church for access to new mountain park

    "Denver does not have access to Axton Ranch", and "a local church has refused to sell it access to the only road [Camp Eden Road] leading into its new mountain park".

    "'Despite over a year of communicating about an easement and many months negotiating the terms of an easement, the two parties were unable to reach an agreement,' Denver wrote in an eminent domain lawsuit."

    "'Denver requires access to Axton Ranch promptly to manage and protect its property, and to ultimately allow for public access and enjoyment of Axton Ranch,' the city claims."

    "The city’s plans for Axton Ranch Mountain Park have met resistance from neighbors in that rural area for years. A group of residents calling itself Preserve Coal Creek Canyon warned in 2021 that the park will bring traffic, crime and vagrants"

    Wonder if this case will drag on until it possibly reaches the US Supreme Court?!

    Beth Eden is a good, solid church.

    OK - but what makes the church think that crime will increase?
