We’re a land use and economic development company. Most people aren’t sure what that means, but essentially we have three types of clients:
- Developers – we help developers get the permits and approvals then need (especially difficult ones) in a timely manner. We also help them analyze and select locations for their projects. We also help bridge the gaps where a jurisdiction’s policies, permits and practice don’t quite fit or are not anticipatory of a type of project.
- Cities/Countys/EDOs – knowing what it takes to make a project happen, we help advise communities on policies, programs and marketing so that they are more effective at getting the economic development they want. Essentially, we help these clients get smarter, more strategic and we do it for a better cost structure than “planning” companies.
- Small Businesses & Individuals – zoning is one regulation that applies to every business, every non-profit and every individual, so when small businesses run into zoning challenges that are complex and political, we help them navigate to safety. Click here for an example
Unfortunately, we frequently hear our new small business and individual clients say something like, “Wow, I didn’t even know people like you were out there. . .”
We recently helped a small business, The Grayson, resolve a zoning compliance matter that threatened to shut them down because their c0-housing solution to long term rentals for corporate relocation clients was defined as a “hotel” though it’s a far cry from such. It would be incredibly difficult to walk through the challenges of their situation in a single blog post (so we won’t try). But, we’d like to provide you with our client’s thoughts, which she allowed us to share:
“Toyer’s firm has a great background and working knowledge of regulations, zoning, and code. Toyer was able to navigate the complexity of county planning department and code, succeeding in getting a resolution that kept our business from having to close. More incredible was the fact that Toyer was successful where attorneys had failed to help us with the problem. Without Toyer Strategic’s involvement, we would have spent thousands of dollars fighting a losing battle,” Mariam Zinn, Owner, The Grayson
We’re proud of the work our company does and what it means to small business and entrepreneurs.
