Accountability for Timely Zoning Decisions

06/22/2009

When developers need timely approval of municipal zoning requests, they turn to the Larkin Hoffman team for cases involving application of Minnesota's 60-Day Rule, which requires a city to grant or approve a written zoning request within 60 days or the request is deemed automatically approved by statute. Larkin Hoffman has litigated more 60-Day Rule cases than any firm in Minnesota, including the case of American Tower v. City of Grant in which the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled in favor of American Tower, upholding this powerful statute that seeks to hold local government accountable by requiring timely decision-making on zoning matters where time is money to the property owner.
