How Zoning Works

Dear Landowner,

   Thank you for considering a partnership with Summit Locations. It makes our day when we receive calls from prospective landowners and we are given the opportunity to explain the land leasing process. We try our absolute hardest to simplify the details and to make the leasing experience as pleasant as possible for the landowners. 

Some of the questions frequently asked by landowners are:

‘What would I have to do?’

The only possible things we would require of the land owner is a few signatures and cash the quarterly check we send you.. (in some rare cases we may need the land owner to attend a township/municipality zoning meeting to get the permit approved locally).

‘Would I have to take care of the permits?’

We take care of all the zoning permits with the State and local officials.

‘Where would the sign go?’

The placement of the sign is negotiable. As long as the sign is visible from the principal roadway our Leasing Agents will work with you on placement.

‘How high is the sign?’

The bottom of the sign is 15 feet off the ground. (we can adjust this slightly if needed). The pole is 20 inches in diameter. Anything you do under the sign, if it does not obstruct the view of the sign, and do not obstruct our access to the sign, what you do under the sign is of no concern to us.

‘What about the content of the sign?’

The content of the signs will be family friendly. Nothing with adult entertainment, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, nor will we advertise for any competitors if you operate a business on the property. If there are any special requests you might have that could result in a conflict of interest for you, we can work with you on those as well. Example: An animal shelter once requested we do not advertise anything pro-hunting.

‘What do you advertise?’

We advertise for local businesses such as automotive companies, contractors, insurance and real estate agents, restaurants, educational facilities, jewelry stores, pawn shops, gun shops, golf courses, hotels, tourist attractions and entertainment, companies hiring, just to name a few.
