ENTITLEMENT ANALYSIS

Development Agreement Analysis
Impacts of Conditions and Exactions
EIR Alternatives
Public Facilities Financing Plan

When approval to develop a project is received, local government imposes conditions under which the project can proceed. These conditions can have a significant financial impact on the developer, and can sometimes over burden the project feasibility. It is important that alternative methods of satisfying the conditions be evaluated. An important result of the entitlement process is approval of a project with well-balanced conditions so that it will ultimately succeed from both a public and private perspective. DPFG consultants can determine the costs and benefits of this process and provide meaningful recommendations for cost effective solutions.
