Zoning concerns, other claims lead to construction litigation

Residents, business owners, patrons and numerous other people often take pride in the look and function of a particular area. This pride can also lead to a protective nature for many reasons, which means that changes to the area could face contention and possibly even lawsuits. Construction litigation is not uncommon when proposed structures do not sit well with community members.

Florida readers may be interested in a lawsuit filed by multiple community groups in another state. Apparently, the city planning commission had approved the construction of three high-rise towers, but the members of the community believe that the structures do not coincide with the overall character of the neighborhood. This is not the first suit to come from these proposed structures either.

In December, the city council had sued the city over the approved development because the project did not have to go through the city's Uniform Land Use Review Procedure. The lawsuit recently filed by the community groups reiterates some of the concerns of the previously filed suit, but they also have other concerns. For instance, they believe that building the three towers would violate zoning rules for the area. Nonetheless, the city and developers believe that the project would have benefits for residents by providing affordable housing options.

Facing backlash for construction projects is not unusual for developers and other parties involved. However, it can still delay projects and cause significant issues before steps forward can be taken. If Florida developers are facing issues with construction litigation, they will certainly want to understand their options for handling the claims.
