Legal Issues in Subdivision Platting and Zoning


Learn strategies for addressing nonconformities, negotiating, and resolving issues in the pursuit of a successful project.

Projects often do not conform to zoning codes or other land use regulations found in subdivision platting ordinances. Many more projects lose economic viability through the taking of exactions by governmental entities. This topic helps explain methods and strategies for addressing nonconformities, negotiating with governmental entities and public bodies, and resolving those issues in the pursuit of a successful development project.
