Meislik & Meislik to Co-Sponsor Program on New Jersey Permitting Process

Published: September 6, 2010 | E-Mail

The law firm of Meislik & Meislik is thrilled to be co-sponsoring an exciting new program that will shed light on the confusing world of the New Jersey land development and commercial construction permitting process. Partnering with Bohler Engineering, ENVIRON Corp., and Peter Steck, a New Jersey land use planner with more than 30 years of experience in the field, this free three hour program, scheduled for October 5, 2010 at the Holiday Inn in Saddle Brook, New Jersey, will clarify what it takes to get project approvals in New Jersey, including plans, surveys, environmental studies, permits (e.g., zoning, building, signage), land use approvals, variances (at times), and more, as well as how to overcome the common roadblocks that applicants often face along the way. Karen Abrams, Senior Attorney at Meislik & Meislik, has been working hard planning the program, together with Ira Meislik, managing principal at Meislik & Meislik, who will moderate the program. Each of the scheduled panelists has more than 15 years of experience in the field.
