Zoning, Land Use & Development

Giving property the attention it requires

Maryland cities, counties, and other local governments use zoning plans to establish development standards so land can be used for the common good. Accordingly, zoning ordinances and zoning regulations define and restrict property use. Alexander & Cleaver represents property owners and municipalities in a variety of legal issues.
