Entitlement Services

Permit Place’s unique experience and background in BOTH the land use, planning, zoning and entitlement services process, as well as the permitting process, separates us from all other permit expediting companies.  

Permit Place has provided Entitlement services in many of our nations states in a variety of industries.  Please see our “Case Studies” for more specifics on what industries and where we have provided these services.

The Permit Place difference is that our focus is on communicating to you the nuances that may affect your project so that you know ahead of time what to expect from the upcoming local entitlement process.

Get Ahead With a Feasibility Analysis from Permit Place

Our unique take on Entitlements is our Feasibility Analysis.  We investigate the land use, zoning or entitlements and community take on your project.  Our Feasibility Analysis documents the current zoning.  We take you through whether or not the Use is allowed outright and what the process will be to secure your entitlement.  For example, will this involve an Administrative or will a Public Hearing process be required?  We highlight timeframes, documents required and any site-specific issues such as whether or not there are special overlay issues, special districts or interim controls that may affect your entitlement picture.

This process is not a cookie-cutter process.  Each Feasibility Analysis lays out the specifics for your project.  The following is not an exhaustive list but gives you a good idea of what we include in our Feasibility Analysis:


  1. Determination of the current Zoning Designation
  2. Complete Zoning Analysis (including a list of permitted uses)
  3. Parking count analysis with code required parking districts,
  4. Setback, Floor Area Ratio’s, Height limitations, density review (based on an on-site inspection)
  5. In the case of vacant land or redevelopment situations, provide an entitlement summary of potential height, setback, density and parking limitations (based on information available on-site)
  6. Review of prior and pending discretionary approvals, including Planned Unit Developments (PUD’s), development agreements, conditional/special use permits, variances, zone changes, subdivisions and street (ROW) dedications/vacations.
  7. Review of easements and CC&R’s Review of General/Comprehensive Plan consistency
