Failure to Pass a Resolution Regarding the Acquisition of Land by Eminent Domain

In People ex rel. Director of Finance v. Young Women's Christian Ass'n, 86 Ill. 2d 219, 237, 427 N.E.2d 70, 55 Ill. Dec. 950 (1981), the court determined that there had not been a formal determination of necessity sufficient to support the petition for eminent domain at issue in that case. Likewise in Goldman v. Moore, 35 Ill. 2d 450, 453-54, 220 N.E.2d 466 (1966), which held that the condemning body's failure to pass a resolution regarding the acquisition of land by eminent domain required dismissal of the eminent domain petition.
