Has anyone come across this rluipa? It's unbelievable. There's a guy who just decided to turn his house into a church across from my mom. She's in a residential subdivision and there's suddenly a big sign on the neighbor's lawn advertising church service times. She called the mayor and asked why he was given a permit. Apparently this law was put out in 2000 and it's a way to get around zoning laws. So she's worried about her property values because it looks like she lives in a mixed use area. She was shocked after she complained to the mayor and he sent her a copy of the federal law that they guy showed them. So I don't know what's stopping people from getting a minister's certificate online and turning their homes into a church and avoiding taxes at the same time. What is the point of zoning laws/ This is a regular bi-level home with about 1800 sq feet. Where are they going to park the cars? Who will direct traffic? What's next, a steeple?
