Why Do I Need a Land Use Permit for Property I Wouldn’t Need a Building Permit For?

"We're Glad You Asked That"

Q&A Video Clips

If you own property in a township, why do you need to get a land use permit for everything? Even things, it seems, that you wouldn’t normally need to get a building permit for? Attorney Kyle O’Meara answers the question at the 2019 MTA Conference.

At the MTA 2019 Conference, our attorney’s hosted our annual Question and Answer panel to address the questions you submitted. Our panel included Bill Fahey, Kyle O’Meara, Jacob Witte, and Matthew Kuschel, hosted by Christopher Patterson. Between them, this panel represents decades of experience in sectors ranging municipal law, public utilities, labor & employment, and more. Questions include everything from Medical Marihuana to land use permits. New clips will be shared monthly in our E-Newsletter.

Do you have more questions? Reach out to us. We’re always ready to help.
