Welcome to our blog! I designed this page to serve as a resource for questions related to the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (“RLUIPA”) and related religious governance issues. RLUIPA is Congress’ second attempt to address the inequities of subjective land use decisions by local community planning officials, who routinely denied religious entities the right to use land for religious assembly, but allowed commercial assembly.
My objective is to provide regular updates of cases and commentaries that address RLUIPA and related land use cases, both from the perspective of a religious entity, as well as a local community. I will also comment on religious governance issues, with an emphasis on current challenges being faced in the operation and structure of a church. Please feel free to contact me if you have any updates, questions or comments regarding this site. And, thank you for visiting this blog.
