OPINION



Michael H. Sahn and Nicholas Cappadora Address the State of Local Zoning Laws in the Trump Era

Michael H. Sahn, the Firm’s Managing Partner, and Nicholas Cappadora, an Associate with the Firm, wrote an op-ed for InnovateLI on how President Donald J. Trump's sweeping executive orders on deregulation could affect local zoning laws and they recommend that all municipal governments should stay ahead of the curve.

In their article, Mr. Sahn and Mr. Cappadora pointed out that Trump's revocation of federal regulations could result in an elimination or a rollback of local land use controls, which will give the president the opportunity to go forward with his proposed infrastructure projects. In addition, local elected officials would have to revise the existing zoning regulations to stay in line with Trump's executive orders.

"We must anticipate change, hopefully for the positive," Mr. Sahn and Mr. Cappadora wrote. "Local governments have to start thinking about this now, before the next Executive Order catches everyone by surprise."
