Property And Zoning Information

  1. 1. Property And Zoning Information America's Leading Zoning Consultant Creator and Sole Provider of the PZR Report ®
  2. 2. PZR has developed a zoning report format supported by municipal documentation which provides your staff with a reliable, independently confirmed statement that speaks to the compliance status of your property’s existing use, setbacks, height, density and parking.
  3. 3. Our staff is available to assist in resolving specific zoning issues or problems that arise out of this review process and providing a determination with regard to rebuilding your property in the event of damage or destruction. By allowing PZR to provide you with this zoning report early in the due diligence process, comfort levels can be reached as to legal conforming and nonconforming issues.

  6. 6. Document Acquisition (for sites where no survey is to be provided) The Planning and Zoning Resource Corporation specializes in ordering zoning and building code documents in all 50 states. We have a team of information specialists who are experts in the field of document acquisition.
  7. 7. With access to a database of over 20,000 municipal contacts and a zoning library of over 6,000 zoning ordinances, our information team can coordinate and collect information with great speed and efficiency. We specialize in obtaining copies of the following documents: <ul><li>Zoning Verification Letters </li></ul><ul><li>Building and Zoning Code Violation Letters  </li></ul><ul><li>Certificates of Occupancy  </li></ul><ul><li>Building Permits  </li></ul><ul><li>Variances, Special Use Permits or Conditional Use Permits </li></ul><ul><li>Planned Unit Developments  </li></ul><ul><li>Site Plans  </li></ul><ul><li>Zoning Codes  </li></ul>
  8. 8. The ESR is a brief one or two page report that confirms zoning jurisdiction and designation and provides a conformance determination to use, height, density, setbacks and parking based on current zoning code requirements. Executive Summary Report (ESR) The format specifically provides a “first look” at zoning conditions and identifies areas of possible concern in a very quick and cost-effective manner.
  9. 9. The ESR relies on information obtained from client representatives, local municipal officials, local land surveyors and various internet-based resources of public information. To keep costs and time delays at a minimum, the ESR does not include municipal documents such as zoning letters or copies of documents such as variances, special permits, site plans, and certificates of occupancy or municipal zoning ordinances.
  10. 10. The ESR can be completed much more quickly in this manner, usually within 5 to 7 business days provided a survey or appraisal is available. The fee for each ESR is $300.00. Fees associated with portfolio transactions of multiple sites are negotiable, when economies of scale allow.
  11. 11. Should the ESR reveal “issues” about the property that require more detail and research, the ESR can be upgraded to a full PZR Report® very easily, with the fee adjusted to that of a typical PZR Report®. This high level of flexibility is very useful in portfolio transactions as a means of containing costs, gaining required levels of zoning compliance comfort and targeting energy and resources on those sites that have “problematic” characteristics.
