Land Entitlement

Land Entitlements are those unique set of municipal approvals that allow a development project to move from concept to completion. Every level of municipal government as well as multiple subdivisions of the municipalities can have an influence on the right of a project to proceed.  For example, the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act can impose difficult and time consuming requirements on a project's ability to proceed.  Most states have similar laws that subject new projects to extensive review and documentation before a project can proceed.

The entitlements necessary for any project to go forward are specific to each property and the municipality it is located, but involve some or all of the following categories:

  • Zoning
  • Archaeology
  • Environmental
  • Wetlands
  • Traffic
  • Civil Design
  • Architectural Design
  • Building Code
