Zoning & Land Use

Count on our expertise to help you avoid potential obstacles and guide your real estate project through a complicated web of zoning requirements and political intrigue.

Plat Representation

We assist in establishing a building site by combining or reconfiguring existing lots or unplatted tracts of land. This process may include a public hearing at each step, but can be approved by the staff in many instances.

Rely on Masterplan to expedite this complicated process.
