Knowledge of Local Zoning, Subdivision and Planning Regulations

At Williams, Kratcoski & Can, LLC we are knowledgeable not only of the law in each of these areas, but in many cases with the local rules and regulations. We regularly appear before the local planning commissions and boards of zoning appeals with respect to project approval, variances, and in some cases, rezoning.

On the commercial side, we have assisted all types of clients including automobile dealerships, churches, manufacturers, restaurants and commercial retail developments. The types of matters we have experience in range from sign variances, to area and use variances, to the rezoning of entire areas.

Helping You With Your Real Estate Development Needs

real-estateIn addition to zoning, many communities have specific development requirements and have commissions, usually a planning commission, to enforce those requirements. This is true in the City of Kent. In some cases these commissions have discretion and in other cases, they do not. Any time you are developing property it is essential not only to understand the zoning but also to be aware of and comply with these other requirements.

As a result of our years of practicing zoning law, we have become familiar with many of the requirements of the local communities and where there may be flexibility and where there may not be flexibility.
