Zoning and Land Use

This complex area of law requires extensive experience with local governments and knowledge of zoning regulations. Kuhn, Heap & Monson has served clients in the western suburbs of Chicago since 1978, and our attorneys have successfully handled many land use and zoning issues.

Lawyers in both our residential and commercial real estate practices are able to assist you with land use and zoning issues. Our expertise can be divided into four main categories of land use and zoning law:

  • Zoning, which refers to the many local regulations specifying acceptable uses and sizes for developments
  • Land development, which refers to laying out streets, utilities, and other issues related to the area surrounding the development
  • Subdividing a parcel into buildable lots
  • Annexations of territory into existing municipalities.

We also address a variety of related legal issues, from land/cash donations to impact fees. Our lawyers not only counsel clients on the application of regulations to their development projects, we guide them through the process of approval and apply for variances if necessary. We can also advise clients about strategies that may save significant time and money.

We immerse ourselves in the affairs of our clients, working with them to bring their development projects to a successful conclusion.
