Planning and Zoning

Our representation in land use matters involves the full range of residential, commercial, and industrial development and redevelopment. Our professionals assist our clients in working through matters pertaining to zoning, annexation, subdivision, and other discretionary or special land use approvals. For business clients we represent our clients’ interests before administrative and legislative bodies regarding issues affecting their economic interests. We guide clients through the permitting and enforcement processes of local, regional, state, and federal agencies, while building a solid working relationship between the government entity and the client. For government clients, in addition to the zoning and land use services, the firm serves as special counsel for communities in complex annexation and development negotiations, updating or rewriting zoning, subdivision and other land use regulations, and establishing procedures for zoning petitions and hearings.
