Land Use and Zoning

Our New City, New York, lawyers have been involved with land use and zoning matters in the region since 1973. One of our attorneys, Brian J.

  • Land use planning
  • Site plan applications
  • Subdivision applications
  • Rezoning applications
  • Variances
  • Final permits
  • Setbacks
  • Zoning restrictions
  • Renovations
  • Appeals
  • Residential easements
  • Sewer and water extensions
  • Building permits
  • Challenges by community groups
  • Historic preservation and landmark status

Appearing on clients' behalf at hearings and public meetings

Our attorneys appear at county, town, village planning and zoning board hearings and public meetings. In some cases environmental reports are required as part of the hearing and review process. Because our firm has an active environmental law practice, we know how to obtain such reports expeditiously. We work hard to achieve our clients' goals.
