Providing Comprehensive Care For Land Use And Zoning Law Clients
Where you build determines what you build. That is the real impact of land use and zoning laws – your municipality will categorize your property for certain activities. In some cases, this can seriously impede development and stunt business growth. At Johnson & Borenstein, LLC, we have represented hundreds of clients since 1986 in land use and zoning law issues. We can help.
Our Practice’s Approach
Johnson & Borenstein, LLC, has an active and diverse practice in real estate development and land use permitting in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Our attorneys regularly represent clients before various municipal authorities, including planning and zoning boards, conservation commissions and boards of health. Geographically, we concentrate our practice in municipalities in eastern and central Massachusetts and throughout southern New Hampshire. Our work also extends to representation before various state agencies and authorities, such as the Department of Environmental Protection; Department of Housing and Community Development-Housing Appeals Committee; Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs; and MassHousing.
Our projects include a variety of residential and commercial proposals, ranging in scope from single-family home permitting to large, complex condominium, rental and commercial developments. Although primarily serving private developers and landowners, our land use practice also extends to representing the interests of abutting landowners and municipal entities. Johnson & Borenstein, LLC also litigates permit appeals in the trial and appellate courts and happily considers referrals or permitting appeals from engineers, surveyors, wetland scientists and attorneys.
