NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN THE LAW

Michael Sahn Reflects on 100 Years of Zoning Law

Michael Sahn, Managing Partner of the Firm, wrote an op-ed article for Long Island Business News on how century-old zoning laws must change to meet changing times in order to promote economic growth and further community needs.

In the article, Mr. Sahn suggested that a new approach should be taken to zoning and land use law. "With proper safeguards, having different uses in the same vicinity and, indeed, the same location and zoning districts can actually advance important goals, such as conserving resources, making public transportation more desirable, advancing the use of alternative energy sources, and promoting commerce and economic development," he wrote. "We can have industrial and service uses in reasonable proximity to one another. We can have large and small lot residential development. But, we need the legal foundation to make it all work."
