The city of Lula authorized eminent domain proceedings for six homes downtown to potentially expand its Rafe Banks Wellness Park and improve streetscaping and water drainage issues. The city voted unanimously to approve the resolution at a specially called meeting Dec. 15. Most of the subject properties contain single-family residences, and in total they make up less than two acres along Carter Alley and Maiden Lane.
