If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of not being able to use the building or property you just acquired for your members due to local land use and zoning issues, you should know two things:

  1. You aren’t alone. We’ve seen this scenario play out countless times before.
  2. You have options.

We’ve created a number of downloadable guides to help you navigate the process and level the playing field for your house of worship or school and the local government or municipality. Please download the one that best suits your situation at the link below. And of course, don’t hesitate to contact one of our experienced religious land use and zoning attorneys with any questions.
