rezoning for senior multifamily - Posted by Sammy

Any exp. or tips on selling a zoning board on rezoning land from single-family to multi-family. I and my partner are builders and just recently secured a 15 ac. parcel directly behind a new and quickly becoming large shopping center, walmart, sams, home depot and 42 more stores.
We can build are 7-9 homes and make a nice pay day, but the site has a location that makes it rare and imo a great site for either senior or diabled townhouses.
Every large mall I think of in my state seems to have a townhouse site within walking distance, except this one. Our piece is the only vacant piece left within miles of the shopping center, in fact the homeowner would have a short safe walk, and or drive/ride by wheelchair.
Any ideas on how to “sell” that to a town?
No doubt we will hire a top planning attorney and planner, but I still need more info on “selling” the town on this special use, esp. disabled units.
