A decision to change or not to change the zoning classification of a particular parcel of property, commonly referred to as a “rezoning”, can have significant consequences for either a landowner or his neighbors. A rezoning frequently changes the settled expectations of neighboring property owners regarding what is an appropriate use for a piece of land. This often results in fierce opposition to a rezoning application. In such cases, an experienced land use lawyer is a necessity, since any mis-step can form the basis of a challenge to a rezoning. The lawyers at Weber, Crabb & Wein, P.A. are experienced in rezoning litigation, bringing together their expertise in land use with their extensive appellate litigation experience. They have also successfully brokered negotiated compromises between real estate developers and affected residents concerning the size and scope of developments expected to impact neighboring properties or city resources.
