Zoning and Land Use

The lawyers of Bazos, Freeman, Schuster & Braithwaite, LLC., have extensive experience in providing land use and other entitlement services to our clients.  Over the years, we have represented both publicly and privately owned developers and other land owners in such land use and entitlement matters as:

  • Annexations
  • Subdivisions
  • Rezoning (map amendment); planned unit development and special use approvals
  • Real estate tax rebate agreements
  • Sales tax agreements
  • TIF redevelopment agreements
  • Special service area (“SSA”) negotiations and agreements

Our land use practice is conducted in communities and counties throughout Northern Illinois, where, in most places, our lawyers are known to and respected by the development staff of those governmental bodies.
