Geoffrey Wardle grew up attending public hearings with his father, a planner and land use consultant, from the age of five. Therefore, it surprised no one that he specialized in land use entitlements after graduating from law school.
Having served as land use counsel to a resort community, Geoff has developed significant expertise in evaluating development and entitlement applications from both the applicant and municipal perspective; a keen understanding for process; and most importantly the ability to manage entitlement projects through their entire life cycle from application through approval and even on to litigation.
He regularly appears before municipal design review committees, planning and zoning commissions, and city councils advancing the interests of both institutional and private clients. He is a past regional and local BOMA president and currently serves as Vice President of State Government Affairs for BOMA International. Geoff was identified and recognized every year from 2005 – 2013 by Chambers and Partners as one of Idaho’s leading land use attorneys.
