If you own some land, under what conditions can it be taken away from you?

I imagine if the government is building a superhighway, they may have a way of forcing you to sell. If all of your neighbors gang up on you for keeping your area too blighted, perhaps City Hall has a way of taking your land away from you, something like Child Protective Social Services. What are some common conditions under which land that you own can be taken away by other humans?
