Local Entitlements

Local Entitlements

ECORP provides project support during the local entitlement process. On a regular basis, ECORP advises landowners on the anticipated regulatory steps required for processing their holdings and achieving the right to develop a property for a particular use. For this purpose, ECORP conducts a due diligence assessment for biological, cultural, and other resources. These types of studies function as an “early warning system” for landowners which can then guide them as to which resource-based studies and federal and state permits are needed during the local entitlement process. The end result of the entitlement process is typically the preparation of the associated CEQA document and issuance of a grading and/or development permit.
