Downzoning

Business / Real Estate / Downzoning: A change in zoning from a higher to a lower classification or from a more active to less active classification, such as from residential to conservation, or multifamily to single-family use. In these cases, there is no taking under eminent domain and thus no compensation paid to the affected landowner who helplessly sees the property reduce in value.
