Land use and zoning issues for development projects

On Behalf of | Jun 10, 2024 | Firm News |

Cities, towns and residential areas continually expand in Arizona and other states. Although it feels like lots and farmland are sold and developed in a blink of an eye, the reality is that there are many facets that go into this process. Often, the land is not zoned for what the developer intends to use it for. As such, re-zoning is often necessary.

Zoning ordinances and regulations concerning land use and restriction can be complex and confusing. As such, it is imperative to understand how you can navigate this matter and protect your rights so you can move forward with your development project.

A development project has many working parts, making it crucial to understand what, if any, components are impacted by the regulations, ordinances or restrictions attached to the land. This may require going through the rezoning process via the city, town or county where the land is located. While this may seem like a tedious process to go through, it not only helps ensure you can use the land as you intend to, but it can also help increase the value of the land.

Development law matters

Whether you are dealing with residential, retail, industrial, commercial or agricultural developments, it is important to understand the details and requirements in accordance with the land you seek to develop. Even if there are currently regulations associated with building heights, lot coverage, density, property set or the like, it is important to know that there are options available.
