Land Use Planning and Zoning

Land use planning and zoning encompasses all aspects of planning, zoning, land use, and permitting.  For our local government clients, we ensure that all government actions are taken in compliance with local, state, and federal laws and statutes.  For our private sector clients, we shepherd their development projects through the complex maze of land use and zoning codes and ordinances.  Where disputes arise, we employ our depth of litigation and appellate experience in aid of our client’s cause, whether our client is a governmental entity or a citizen.
