Columbia County neighborhood is attempting to convince Columbia County commission to vote no to rezoning land on Columbia Road for a self-storage project. Advising with zoning and entitlements is a major part of a commercial broker’s role, especially with raw land. We often have to deal with neighbors, and getting them on board with a project can make or break a development.
The neighbors say the project will be “out of place” and that “it will damage the water system”. Of course, the county has an engineer who’s job it is to confirm the stormwater plans are adequate.
What’s your experience with zoning opposition? Have you ever opposed a project that was going to be in “your back yard”? Have you ever put together a project that fell apart due to zoning opposition?
