Webcast— Planning for Religious Uses Under RLUIPA

The Planning and Law Division of the American Planning Association is pleased to host the upcoming webcast Planning for Religious Uses Under The Religious Land Use & Institutionalized Persons Act Information about the webcast is below:

October 22, 2015
1:00 – 2:30 PM ET (noon to 1:30 CT)

Enacted in 2000, the Religious Land Use & Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA) has significantly affected the ways in which local governments plan for religious uses. In some cases, local governments have capitulated under the threat of RLUIPA litigation. In many others, local governments have instead vigorously defended their comprehensive plans of development and review of religious land use applications against such claims. The presenters, who advise local governments and represent religious land use applicants, will explain several different strategies and approaches that can be used to avoid RLUIPA litigation, including through revisions to local zoning codes and accommodating religious uses when appropriate. The presenters, all with RLUIPA litigation experience, will also discuss the different types of RLUIPA claims, the life of an RLUIPA case from start to finish, and approaches that they have found successful.
