Obtaining Government Approvals
Cities and municipalities adopt zoning laws & ordinances to control development. Master plans are designed for each community and designate which areas can be used for business, condominiums, apartments, residential homes, mixed-use, and more. If your proposed location requires a special use, variance, or environmental approval, you’ll want an experienced team on your side. We have experience working across multiple counties and municipalities in the state of Michigan.
