Land Use & Zoning
Dommermuth Cobine West Gensler Philipchuck Corrigan & Bernhard, Ltd., has a long tradition of representing property owners and developers in land use and zoning matters. Our attorneys have successfully represented clients before the municipal entities in Dekalb, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, McHenry and Will Counties. We will guide you through the selection of a development team, the municipal entitlement process and any issues that may arise during construction.
Our attorneys are experienced in high-profile projects. Recent projects include the following:
- Edward Hospital expansion
- Rush Copley Hospital expansion
- North Central College expansion (LEED Project)
- Freedom Commons
- Springbrook Prairie Pavilion (LEED Project)
- Oswego YMCA
- Water Street Development (Tax Increment Financing Project)
However, not everything we touch is controversial. We also regularly handle small, annexations, setback variances or historic district petitions for builders or private property owners. We also have a long history of working with the business community to handle sign variances, parking variances or other code related issues that often arise when remodeling or moving a business. While these projects are generally much smaller in scale, they can often involve complicated legal issues that require professional guidance.
Whether your project is big or small our attorneys will bring a unique perspective to your development team. Our knowledge of the communities within which we work, our understanding of the political environment and our ability to navigate the legal requirements creates immense value in the services we provide.
Increasingly, construction firms, engineers and architects purport to provide similar services. They may market their ability to draft submittal documents, negotiate agreements and generally represent clients before governing bodies. These individuals are not licensed to provide such services. We strongly encourage you to seek legal advice before accepting any such services as their mere representation may have devastating legal consequences for your project.
