Land Use and Zoning
We counsel municipalities in all aspects of land use and zoning matters including master plans, environmental assessment processes, regulatory requirements, alternative energy proposals, and more. Our attorneys have represented municipalities in front of planning boards and zoning boards and assist in the interpretation of local codes and state law.
Our municipal law attorneys engage our experienced Litigation Group to represent municipalities in all judicial and administrative forums. We regularly represent clients at state agency hearings as well as local governing boards during the permit-issuing process.
Gross McGinley’s litigation attorneys defend governing bodies in litigation involving personal injury, wrongful death, premises liability, recreational land use, property disputes, labor and employment, civil rights violations, and exclusionary zoning claims.
