ZONING & LAND USE
Municipalities that have complete and well-designed comprehensive and land use plans are best equipped to attract investment and economic growth. A community with a Land Use Plan that is accepted and upheld by community members and stakeholders is able to forge a steady track toward smart growth. This includes understanding and support for the plan from residents, business-owners, the local planning and zoning boards, and code enforcement officers. When completed, a Land Use Plan should be reflective of the community’s comprehensive planning goals and objectives – focusing on the local economy and business environment, restoring neighborhood vitality, and improving the overall cultural and environmental life-experience of the community.
Because each community has different strengths, weaknesses, threats, and opportunities, Laberge Group’s approach is to work with municipal leaders and local residents to tailor plans and subsequent regulations to each municipal client.
