Zoning & Land Use Law

Katz Herdman MacGillivray & Fullerton PC represents both individual and commercial clients in all aspects of land use and zoning law, including representation throughout the entire process of obtaining, defending and challenging land use entitlements such as rezonings, subdivision approvals, variances and historic design approvals. We represent clients before local zoning and land use tribunals, including city councils, county commissions, planning commissions, boards of adjustment and historic design review boards. We also represent clients in civil litigation and judicial appeals involving land use and zoning approvals.
Our attorneys understand that the success in obtaining the desired approvals often entails complex strategies involving numerous parties, including governmental officials, neighborhood associations, neighboring property owners, community groups and historic preservation organizations. We understand that the client’s goal is to obtain the approvals for a project in a way that is cost-effective and expeditious but also defensible in the event of a legal challenge.
