Land Use and Development

Legal issues related to land use and land development can be complex, especially in Boulder, which is regarded by some as one of the most anti-development jurisdictions in Colorado. We are experienced with land development and land use matters, offering legal guidance to developers, property owners, design professionals, contractors, lenders, and borrowers to help them reach their project goals. We regularly advise on a variety of projects ranging from simple land transactions to complex, mixed-use, multi-level communities.

Development and Construction

We represent developers throughout the land development and construction process, including negotiating and drafting covenants, utility and access easements, reciprocal easement agreements, association documents, and a host of other documents and contracts. Our knowledgeable lawyers also assist developers, design professionals, and contractors with the negotiation and drafting of design and construction contracts.

Zoning, Planning, and Entitlements

PackardDierking has broad experience with growth control legislation and affordable housing measures that may affect development. With in-depth knowledge of these regulations, we have been successful representing developers and property owners in connection with all types of development approvals, zoning, and other land use matters.

Common Interest Communities

Colorado is one of only a handful of states in the country that have adopted the Uniform Common Interest Community Act. Many land developments today are enhanced by the creative use of common interest communities. We have cutting edge expertise in helping clients create everything from relatively straightforward condominium communities to unique mixed-use, multi-level planned communities.
