Representation of Private Company in Seeking Local Public Financing Assistance


A private company seeking land use entitlements for a neighborhood-scale, mixed-use commercial center turned to the Larkin Hoffman Land Use team for legal guidance. The first step was to help the client secure a right to public finance assistance (TIF) to assist with site correction and utility extension issues. This financing assistance was critical for the client to afford to pursue the project. The Larkin Hoffman team also advised the client on the land use entitlements, development contract and public finance documentation as well as negotiating on the client’s behalf with local government staff and elected officials.
