Zoning and Land Use
Our attorneys often work with municipalities and boards on applications for developmental projects. Given our experience, we can provide complete guidance to help municipalities and applicants comply with all local and state codes and statutes, including the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA). Our attorneys have represented developers, business owners, zoning boards of appeal, and planning and town boards, in a variety of settings including applications for variances and Article 78 proceedings. A number of our lawyers have firsthand knowledge of the inner working of government agencies from past and present experience as members of zoning, planning and town boards.
In addition, the Goldberg Segalla team will assist the municipality in all aspects of land use and zoning issues and will provide the necessary legal advice in handling all regulatory issues that might arise. Our knowledge allows us to take proactive steps that can help our clients avoid future problems. For example, issues involving the rezoning of parcels are handled in such a way that will allow the municipality and property owner protection of property rights and governmental interests. Should litigation result out of SEQRA claims or other issues involving the actions of a planning or zoning board, our team of attorneys will be available to guide our clients through the process.
