Entitlement Negotiations

Entitlements are

  • General Plan Amendments,

  • Rezonings,

  • Planned Developments,

  • Subdivisions and

  • Similar Applications.

Entitlements are

  • Managed by local agency staffs

    • city managers,

    • city attorneys,

    • planning directors and

    • city engineers. 

  • Approved by

    • Planning Commissions and

    • City Councils. 


This requires a coordinated, two-front approach.

  • First, staff needs to be convinced to look differently at a certain property.

    • They need to be convinced to see the same vision that you see. 


  • Second, Planning Commissions and City Councils need to see a significant City benefit.

    • Increasing housing stock,

    • Social progress and

    • Economic increase. 

The Winning Strategies Team simultaneously works on each approach, using the progress of one to win the other.
