Litigation Opposing Land Development Fees


In the case of Ground Development, Inc. v. City of Montrose, the Larkin Hoffman team of Gary Van Cleve and Rob Stefonowicz forced a settlement from the City of Montrose on claims of violations of state law and breach of contract arising out of development approvals to which the City sought to attach substantial lot development fees. After one day of trial, the City agreed to withdraw the various monetary conditions and allow the development to proceed without the lot development fees.
