Zoning and Land Use Litigation in Colorado

Most zoning and land use applications go follow a fairly predictable path:

  • First, the plan is presented to and reviewed by the municipal or county planning staff.
  • Then, it goes to a planning commission, such as the one on which Mr. Lipstein himself served.
  • Then, the issue goes to the City Council or the Board of County Commissioners.

After that, if the parties are still not satisfied with the ruling, the issue becomes a matter of litigation and my end up in the court system if a satisfactory resolution cannot be negotiated.
