Land Use Planning and Real Estate Development
"John has been instrumental in securing entitlements and permits for many of my real estate development projects in the Santa Cruz area over the last 30 + years. He has provided excellent project coordination/management and facilitated the development review process in an efficient and successful manner. He has a thorough understanding of the laws and policies governing development, the practices and procedures of local government agencies and has excellent relationships with government staff members."
