The Mesa City Council approved Monday for the city to acquire eight acres of land, likely through eminent domain, to construct a new public safety facility for police and fire departments. 

Eminent domain is a government’s right to seize private property for public use if necessary, while paying the original owner “just compensation.”  

The city has been eyeing an undeveloped property in the 1300 block of North Power Road just north of Brown Road in northeast Mesa to construct its new public safety facility to address slower police and fire response time in the area.
