Sometimes our clients find themselves unable to do what they want to do with their property because government officials tell them that their plans do not conform to city zoning laws. What they often don’t understand is that one city official’s word is not the final answer. We can help you present your requests to the Council, Zoning Board of Appeals, or Board of Trustees. Our experience can help you determine what expectations are reasonable, when the local government is acting unreasonably, and what remedies are available. Using legal principles such as pre-existing non-conforming use, discriminatory zoning, and variances, we can frame your requests in the terms you need for success.
Of course, if appeal or resubmission of your requests is necessary, we can do what is necessary to zealously advocate your interests.
