Members of the Plainville Redevelopment Authority recently told selectmen that they are considering asking the town to designate a redevelopment area that would allow the town to take land by eminient domain.
The area would cover about a half mile of South Street and about 300 yards of West Bacon Street, and the designation would have to be be approved at town meeting.
Town Administrator Joseph Fernandes said the town may be better off starting with a smaller area closest to the intersection of the two streets.
"I'd rather that they made some progress in the immediate area and use that as an example of what they can do," Fernandes said.
