Entitlement Support

ZC is uniquely experienced in assisting projects with sustainability issues during entitlement. We focus on analysis to determine cost effective sustainability strategies, assisting with staff negotiations, and appearances at public hearings.


Local Government Experience

Building on Principal John Zinner’s experience as Planning Advisor for the City of Los Angeles Office of the Mayor and as a City of Santa Monica Planning Commissioner, and our extensive sustainability policy, analysis and green building certification experience, ZC helps developers create sustainability strategies that meet the project’s goals and budget, and support project approval.
