Ordinance and zoning disputes revolve around the public regulation of privately-owned real estate. Local zoning and ordinance statutes play an important role in the development of communities in which we live and are necessary to create cohesive, safe and pleasing environments. At the same time, a zoning ordinance may prohibit the use of real estate for certain purposes that would normally be considered useful or in line with the characteristics of the neighborhood. Additionally, ordinances may place restrictions or requirements upon property that hurt its usefulness or value. Other common ordinance disputes involve parking and parking lots, the use of signs, and set-back issues.
