Land Use Planning & Zoning Law

Zoning & Land Use Planning Law

Real estate may be privately owned, but it’s regulated so that it may be taxed appropriately. Call our offices for help with your real estate issues.

Zoning Restrictions

Cities can restrict how real estate is used. This can cause conflict between private citizens and businesses with their desired use of the real estate, and the municipality that has restricted the use of the property.

Types of zoning restrictions often have to do with:

  1. Height Limits On Buildings,
  2. Off-Street Parking,
  3. The Setback From Which A Structure Can Be Built Next To A Property Line
  4. Signage Restrictions
  5. Floodplains
  6. Use Of Buildings & Accessories

Zoning Relief from Municipality

Property owners often request relief from their city or county to enable them to construct something outside its zoning restrictions.  Here are the common ones our office has experience on handling for you.
