DMW offers a range of zoning services from obtaining approvals for individual residential housing to large multi-lot residential subdivisions, and from single commercial buildings to large regional commercial or industrial parks.  We specialize in the initial feasibility surveying of a property through the jurisdictional approval and permitting of development plans.  DMW remains current with all local zoning regulations and often offers input in prospective government zoning legislation.  We work with various clients, from individual lot owners to specialized land-use attorneys, to assist in identifying and maximizing the development potential of a property and to see the project through to completion.  Our experience in all aspects of zoning, from planning to the project’s realization, has facilitated approval of successful development throughout Baltimore County, Maryland and the wider region.
