I believe its attached to some formula as most fed regs are base in values cost of living etc. The city will be paying for everything . The house ,moving expenses , temp housing, utilities ,improvements to the new house , inconvenience etc etc . The laws seem to be two fold 1) the money and staff time to do this will make any city pause and really think about whether or not its worth it to do 2) designed to "right the wrong" of the poor being forced out of their homes for highway and urban renewal projects prior to the 1970s where they were bullied or railroaded by city officials out of their homes. I remember reading cities would declare an area "blighted" via ordinance thus allowing them to condemn property .The designation also immediately lowered the property value thus allowing cheaper payments to the owners

Fair enough. But we are dealing with the unintended consequences of the "fix." I'm pretty sure the intention of the law was not to make sure that blocks of abondominiums keep standing until they physically collapse. In a way, the law creates an unfunded mandate.

Yes, I'm from "Bawlmer" though that is not how I pronounce it. If I am wrong which I am not tell me why I am wrong.

You can talk about constructing new housing but if people will not take care of it then the cycle starts all over again. Remember the houses that many of these people are living once were very nice.
