Jonathan G. Vinson
Jonathan focuses his practice on all areas of land use, including representation of a wide variety of developers, property owners, and corporate, non-profit and individual clients in zoning, planning, municipal law, and economic development incentives matters. His practice includes representation before city councils and planning and zoning commissions on zoning changes, special use permits, and planned development districts, including “form-based” zoning and mixed-use projects, and before boards of adjustment on variances and special exceptions as well as counseling clients with regard to land use entitlements and permitting issues, land use due diligence, and a very wide variety of other land use and municipal law issues.
Jonathan enjoys working on a wide variety of land use and municipal law issues. He especially enjoys the challenges and complexities of development and redevelopment projects in denser, more urban settings, especially mixed use and higher density multifamily projects, and he has worked on numerous projects in the Uptown and Oak Lawn areas, in particular. Jonathan has long been involved in zoning and land use matters, and served on the Dallas City Plan Commission from 1991 to 1995.
