Land Use and Zoning

Real Estate

Every construction or development project proceeds under the specter of local land use regulations—some of which can be unnecessarily devastating to the livelihood of a new residential or commercial development project, as well as remodeling and/or expansion projects. Current Minnesota law eases previously harsh restrictions against variances, enhancing opportunities for builders and owners to achieve improved project outcomes.

Attorneys from Henson Efron’s real estate practice work with clients and the local municipalities to pursue reasonable solutions to existing development challenges. Where appropriate and desired, we represent clients in a contested hearing before local planning commissions and city councils in an effort to secure a favorable contested outcome.
