I've been talking a lot about subdivisions lately, but the world of entitlements is much more broad. For example, a great way to add value to an existing building is to change the allowed use. Typically applied to vacant commercial property, examples include changing from warehousing to residential or general office to medical office. But the changes don't have to be that substantial to add significant value. You can identify a use that would be allowed in the particular zone with the approval of entitlements such as a Conditional Use Permit. Once approved, the space can be occupied by a user that otherwise wouldn't be able to without the entitlement approval. You would be surprised how straightforward the process can actually be.
