Who owns the District of Columbia?
The District of Columbia is a federal district and not a state. Originally the land to create DC was ceded by the Commonwealth of Virginia and the state of Maryland. The Federal Government owns large parts of the land either directly or through the National Parks Service. Additionally the DC Government owns land for its own use. The remaining land is privately owned. What makes this federal district unique is that the Federal government has oversight of the district and as such we have no direct voting rights in congress.

When can the government take my land?
The Government can take your land for any reason seen fit by the government for use by the government. They can take your land for an expansion of highways, schools, or any reason under the Right of Escheat by the State or by the federal government! In most cases they exercise this right when a land owner or property owner dies and leaves the property unkept or unowned...But they can and do take properties each year that are legitimately owned and operated properties. I have witnesses the Escheat of property owned by a friend of mine and given to the University of Houston...

What is communal land ownership?
Communal land ownership is where a group or culture owns the land, and not the government, a company, or an individual. In America, this is not a common concept anymore, since land that is not privately owned is owned by the local, state or federal government. This type of ownership still exists in some parts of the world, though. Communal land can be described as used or shared in common by everyone in a group or community. In that sense, a public park or town common (both owned by the town but dedicated to public use) might be considered modern communal land.
