Land Use & Zoning

Land Use and Zoning Attorneys in Newburyport, Massachusetts

It's not always easy for developers or land owners to build new structures or make changes to existing property — even when those plans would clearly benefit the community at large. Similarly, preserving historic structures, maintaining some control over municipal growth, and seeing that community standards are respected are all legitimate goals that should not be overlooked.

For a law firm that can help you strike the right balance between these two — call or contact Mark L. Janos
