Land Use Matters
Land Use Matters
Garfield & Hecht brings a unique perspective to representing land use applicants who seek approvals from Colorado municipalities, counties, and special districts because our practice also includes representing local governments. Our attorneys may be representing a municipal planning board at a public hearing on a Monday evening and then be representing a private landowner or developer before a different board the following day. We maintain close professional relationships with many local government attorneys and actively participate as a member of the Colorado Municipal League and Special District Association. This allows us to speak the same language as other local government attorneys and staff, who are often happy to work with us because they know that we can get things done within the restraints of local government law. Our contacts across Western Colorado also give us key insights to assist clients in navigating local politics. Nevertheless, by the experience and reputation of the firm’s litigation department, local governments also know that we are ready and capable to assert and protect our client’s rights in court when justified by the circumstances.
Representative land use projects include Fox Crossing, Hyatt Grand Aspen, South Aspen Street Townhomes, Stein Eriksen, Buildings CORE and MUSE, and Top of Mill in Aspen; Wildcat Ranch in Snowmass Village; Solaris at Vail and Fox Hollow; Springridge Reserve, Pinyon Mesa, and Valley View Village in Garfield County, Cardiff Glen in Glenwood Springs, and numerous individual homes and commercial development parcels throughout the Roaring Fork, Eagle River, and Colorado River valleys.
