In the recent case of Andrews v. Amherst, 68 Mass. App. Ct. 365 (March 5, 2007) (Download), the Appeals court held that a Landowner of approximately 20 acres of vacant land which had been rezoned from a light industrial zone to a flood prone zone had no claim for reverse spot zoning on the part of the town, even though the plaintiffâ€™s property was the only land to be rezoned in the area.
