We are experienced with:

  • Planning use and zoning permits

How Planning Use Permits, Restrictions And Other Factors Impact You

Knowing in advance what types of property can be used for which businesses sets you up for success. And you do not need to accept a “no.”

Our lawyers work extensively with city officials, contractors and other entities to determine what properties are eligible for. We are very familiar with what requirements are set in stone and when cities are willing to grant variances — exceptions— to the rules.
