No Limits Christian Ministries sued in federal court late last month, saying that the city's zoning rules violated the U.S. Constitution because they specifically barred religious groups but allowed other clubs and organizations. The church had sought a conditional permit to allow it to worship in a vacant building it owned, but the city originally denied the church's request.
On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge approved a settlement between the city and the church that recognizes the church as a “permitted use” of the property and allows it to begin holding services in the Main Street building; click below for more.
