Dear Friend,  


Small business drives the engine of new job creation. Many of our law clients work at small businesses. Recently, Jeffrey G. Nutt and Sadeer Farjo had the opportunity to attend the Macomb Business Expo hosted by the Sterling Heights Regional Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the Anchor Bay Chamber of Commerce.

Our law firm sponsored the video taping of a series of compelling interviews where we asked one simple question to the vendors and attendees..."What is the key to your business success?" During our interviews, what we found was keen attention to providing outstanding customer service. If you would like to see any of the 27 videos click here.

Basic Zoning Laws

Local zoning ordinances and regulations are important considerations when choosing your business location. Zoning laws impact several critical business decisions such as purchasing property or making improvements to your existing property, so it is important to understand the laws before you commit to anything.

Property is zoned into commercial and residential uses, so a commercial building cannot be built in a residential neighborhood and vice-versa, unless there is a change in zoning ordinances. Other considerations also come into play such as how you intend to use your facility, the nature of any renovations, and so on.

Finding out How Property is Zoned

You can find out how property is zoned by contacting your local planning agency. One way to determine your local planning agency is to perform an internet search using the name of your community or city, your state, and the term "planning."

Before getting too involved in a zoning issue, or any real estate legal matter, consider hiring a local land use attorney to help you through the process and ensure you are compliant. For more, go to:
