What is Proposition 207?

Regulatory Takings- When a government deprives

a person of the use of property by the application of

regulations without compensating the owner.

Eminent Domain- Fifth Amendment allows for

the taking of private property for a public use

so long as just compensation is paid.

Eminent Domain Effects

Property can only be physically taken for

  • Government projects
  • Literal safety issues

Courts will no longer be able to weigh public benefits

against private controls in determining a public use in

slum and blight areas.

Proposition 207 will limit future economic

redevelopment opportunities and require the public to

endure blight conditions.
