I'm not sure that I understand your question. You are speaking of rezoning, which can always take place. Grandfathering occurs after a rezoning. In other words if you are currently in a residential zone, which is rezoned to business, your property will remain residential as a nonconforming use. In other words, the rezoning won't affect your current use of your property under the old zoning. Does this answer your question? I hope that this answer is helpful and that you will rate it positively. Please feel free to send me a follow-up question.
