about us

In June, 2016, Giffels Webster, a Detroit-headquartered consulting firm specializing in infrastructure and land development solutions for public, private and institutional clients, acquired Clearzoning. The acquisition broadens Giffels Webster’s full suite of community-building solutions through additional expertise and proprietary processes.

While our name has changed, we continue to promote and offer the Clearzoning® product, which reorganizes zoning and other development regulations for greater efficiency, identifies and resolves conflicting regulations, and provides a significant “health check‐up” for zoning codes.  Giffels Webster is at the forefront of developing clear and user‐friendly zoning ordinances — it’s what we do. Our clients range in size and character from rural communities to small towns to medium‐sized cities and townships.
