Has anyone here run into major issues during a renovation. I'm speaking in regards to your local planning boards.

The last thing we want to do is split our upstairs theatre to a two-screen and have the board tell us we need to install an elevator or transporter room. Though not an historically registered theatre, we've gotten by a lot of regulations because of the age of the building.

If you've run into problems, how did you rectify them? Or did you simply cancel the restoration? How often during mid-construction has a planning board changed their minds about approval?

I'd love to hear some tales.

Thanks,

If you havent already, I would hire an Attorney that specializes in dealing with local construction law. Often local planning boards or committees will unknowingly over step thier bounds, or not fairly enforce rules which an attorney will be able to recognize and use to your advantage. I have seen some local zoning boards make requirements that are outlandish and not legal thereby openeing the city or town up to law suits. It is best to make sure you are represented when dealing with these people.
