THE LOCAL TOUCH

If the property you are purchasing is not zoned for the use you had in mind, if you are experiencing opposition from the community or city, or if your zoning request was denied, we can help.

Zoning is highly local and highly relational, and the process is different in every community. If a professional with local knowledge is not involved at the beginning of the application process, it may hurt the chances of having the project approved.

At Dalton & Tomich, we understand Michigan and Illinois zoning processes and community dynamics and have relationships with the people who can move the project forward.
