Writer not worried about downzoning

   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. 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.
