Land use, zoning: key concerns in California development projects


Development projects in the Central Valley and elsewhere across California are likely to confront some sizable obstacles thrown up by various actors, right?

That is certainly the case in most instances, given the myriad considerations that attach to any business plan involving land in California.

That is a precious commodity, and parties ranging from various citizens' advocacy groups and special interest organizations across a broad spectrum to environmental regulators and municipal planners will often want to weigh in singly or in concert with their respective concerns regarding any development scheme.

We note on a relevant website page at the business law firm of Brumfield & Hagan, LLP, that, as a consequence of that, "land use and zoning issues can result in costly delays that have a significant impact" on the success of any intended commercial scheme.

Zoning is a key consideration where land-related business development is concerned. An online overview of land use issues and challenges facing developers points out that zoning rules and restrictions are the direct outgrowth of regulators' desire "to control and direct the development of property within their borders."

Many people and organizations take a strong interest in that. In California, a would-be developer is quite likely to quickly confront a host of challenges surrounding environmental issues, which are apt to be most specifically addressed in the California Environmental Quality Act.

In addition, business managers might be focused on zoning-related matters ranging from the securing of various state and federal permits to seeking zoning variances.

In summary, any land-use scheme envisioned by a developer in California is almost certainly going to be closely scrutinized by many third parties and have to clear many hurdles en route to being successfully realized.

A proven business and commercial law firm with a deep well of experience representing clients in land-related and real estate matters can help with the process.
