Land Use and Zoning

<< Practice Area List
Woodworth & associates represents property owners, buyers, sellers, and commercial tenants in a wide range of land use and zoning matters. Property owners and their contractors, architects and engineers often require skilled and aggressive attorneys to assist in getting their building permits, resolving inspection disputes with local governments, obtaining conditional use permits, variances, establishing and enforcing "grandfathering" rights for non-conforming uses, compliance with the Americans with disability act, and obtaining certificates of occupancy, or for change of use. Our attorneys have worked successfully with many cities, counties, and state agencies to resolve land use and zoning issues, including through contested case hearings and, when needed, appeal to the land use board of appeals ("LUBA"), the Oregon Court of Appeals, the Oregon Supreme Court, and the federal courts.

Our services and areas of experience include:

! Review and analysis of city and county zoning and development codes to assist in determining the requirements applicable to your project

! Assisting you, your architects, engineers and other experts in dealing with city and county bureaucrats to eliminate burdensome or improper requirements on your project

! Obtaining zoning variances and conditional use permits, including representation at hearings before hearings officers, city councils, county commissions, and other quasi judicial land use proceedings
