Land Use And Zoning
Few areas of the law involve as complicated a combination of local, state and federal considerations as land use and zoning. For example, in New Jersey, the implementation of state land-use programs often comes down to decisions made at the local level.
These decisions can be difficult, as governments seek to restrict what landowners can do with their property. At Fiorello, Puccio & Fiorello, L.L.C., we can help you assert your rights and resolve the issues in effective practical ways that avoid undue burdens.

Planning And Zoning Issues In Wayne Township
Tip O’Neill, the former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, famously said that all politics is local. There perhaps should be a corollary to this for local land use decisions.
It is one thing for the state to have land preservation programs such as Green Acres and Farmland Preservation. But it is at the local level that such programs actually get implemented.
The process is a fairly complicated one and is best navigated with the assistance of skilled legal counsel. There are many steps along the way, from the development of a master plan for a given locality to decisions of the planning board about what development to allow.
In Wayne Township, there is also a Zoning Board of Adjustment that has the authority to grant certain modifications from the established standards.
