As the city of Santa Clarita labors to make its Newhall revitalization plans a reality, the Just Passing Thru body piercing studio at Lyons Avenue and Mian Street may face imminent closure.

On Tuesday the City Council will consider whether to use eminent domain to seize the property, which will eventually make way for a new library at the intersection of Lyons Avenue and Main Street.

It would mark the first use of the controversial practice by the city in its quest to reshape the face of Newhall.

Read Monday's edition of The Signal for more about Just Passing Thru's situation.
