How do you change zoning?
It has to be done by ordinance after series of public hearings. You would need to see legal advice before you proceed.
My neighbor and I are having a dispute about a property line. How can it be resolved?
The correct answer is determined by a survey of the property, which can be costly. Before you do that, you should contact a lawyer because it may have already been done and a lawyer can determine that.
My neighbor has a home-based business and they are not following zoning codes. What should I do?
Home occupations are allowed in many municipalities, but some have no zoning, so you would need to consult with a lawyer if home occupations are permitted and if this home occupation is in accordance.
