Colorado Attorney Assists with Land Use and Zoning Issues
Experienced real estate lawyer represents residential and commercial clients
At Fischer Law Office, I have extensive experience representing both residential and commercial clients in property matters involving land use and zoning issues. I understand state and local ordinances and regulations that affect your ability to use or improve upon your land as you wish. I represent individuals and businesses in the Denver area and throughout Colorado before municipal planning and zoning boards and other governmental agencies and review bodies in a number of administrative processes.
The use of land is often regulated by state and local jurisdictions. Between and idea and swinging a hammer, there are often different levels of regulations to navigate. Zoning is one level of regulation imposed on land owners. Most zoning in the Denver metro area is based on Euclidean zoning which attempts to keep similar uses together, such as residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural. The failure to obtain zoning permit may result in the penalty or closure. The process becomes more complicated when seeking a variance or zoning change as part of a development project. There is often multiple moving parts going back and forth between the municipality and project support team working to address concerns and reach solutions to problems. The owner will likely need several approvals of plans, permits and agreements from several different departments before beginning to move dirt. Since 2000, I have handed a variety of zoning, land use and entitlement matters. I will help get you through the entitlement process.
Colorado lawyer helps property owners obtain necessary permits
Your business or residential property represents a significant investment, so your ability to make improvements through new construction or renovation is important. Before beginning any building project, however, you may need approval for a zoning variance or a construction permit. I draw on my knowledge of state and local laws to assist with applications for relevant permits. I can also file appeals if your application is denied. If you need experienced representation in any zoning or land use matter, my firm has the background and skill to work toward a resolution that meets your needs.
Skilled attorney advises builders, landowners and developers throughout Colorado
My clients include developers, contractors and entrepreneurs seeking to build new commercial properties. In addition to helping clients such as these apply for permits and zoning variances, I handle matters such as easements for road, water, sewer and power lines. I also represent landowners hoping to subdivide their property for development.
Because of my past experience handling land use and entitlements, the firm is well positioned to represent clients on all matters related to land use and zoning. I know the procedures required by the various agencies and boards. I also understand the different time limits on appeals imposed by each agency and commission.
In addition to handling land use and zoning matters, I advise on issues such as:
- Planned unit development (PUD)
- Environmental impacts
- Plat and site plan applications
- Appeals of adverse zoning decisions
