Reader isn't worried about downzone

I went to a meeting recently where a man in the audience told the

group that we would lose real estate value if our land was downzoned in the

new King County Plan 2000. I went home and thought about it. I realized that

my property was downzoned in 1989 and three years later I sold one parcel

of raw land for twice what I had paid for it. I sold my other piece of land

for three times what I paid for it. I bought both of the pieces of land a few

years earlier.

I did not lose money the last time my property was downzoned, so I

am not worried about it this time.
