Eminent Domain
Eminent domain is the inherent power of the state to seize a citizen's private property, or rights in private property, without the owner's consent.
Land Use
Land use law involves regulatory issues pertaining to or limiting the development of real property, such as comprehensive plans, zoning regulations, land development codes, and other similar restrictions.
Zoning
The primary purpose of zoning is to segregate uses that are thought to be incompatible. In practice, zoning is used to prevent new development from interfering with existing residents or businesses and to preserve the “character” of a community.
