Zoning / Variances
Zoning and Variances
Zoning is the practice of the government regulating the types of buildings and properties which can be contained within a certain portion of a city or municipality. Variances allow an applicant to request deviation from the zoning regulations. Variances do not change the zoning laws for an area, but rather are an exception to the rule. Like most government based applications, variances can be very difficult and time-consuming, so hiring a lawyer who is experienced with the process is a great idea!
