Towns and municipalities regulate the use of land through zoning laws and ordinances. Planners divide towns and cities into areas specifically zoned as residential, commercial or mixed use. When developers, builders, home or business owners construct, remodel or renovate dwellings or other buildings, permits, variances and site approvals may be required before work begins.
Nearly all counties, cities and municipalities have permitting requirements of one sort or another, which often complicate the process of building and development. State and federal regulations related to the environment, water, waste facilities and utilities add to the complex steps involved in construction and the development of real estate.
To keep your project on track, legal advice, guidance and skillful negotiation assistance is frequently a necessity. Mark Dioguardi is an expert in both commercial and residential developments requiring site plan approvals, permitting (including special use permits) and assorted variances in towns throughout metro-Phoenix and beyond.
