Land Use and Development

One of the most important rights associated with property ownership is the ability to adapt or develop it for some profitable or desirable use. Development and use of property supports economic growth and contributes to the public welfare.

In this Section, you will find some basic information about Land Use and Development. The Office of the Property Rights Ombudsman helps parties understand and comply with these laws and can help resolve disputes between governments and property owners.

If you have specific questions, please contact an attorney in the Ombudsman’s Office to discuss your matter in more detail.

Land Use and Development regulations and protections are also discussed in the Find The Law section.
