Zoning Out Churches
The city council of Burbank, Illinois, passed a new zoning law late last year banning churches from building in commercial areas. The action came after Rios de Agua Viva, a Hispanic congregation, signed a $900,000 contract to transform an old restaurant into its new sanctuary.

The congregation did what many have done before it: it filed a lawsuit alleging violations of the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA), a 2000 federal law designed to protect houses of worship from discrimination.

More than a decade after RLUIPA's passage, however, many religious institutions face lengthy, costly battles to exercise their freedom to worship, said Richard Baker, an attorney who is representing the Burbank church. ...

Jim Lincoln | Nebraska  Find all comments by Jim  Lincoln
In Lincoln we had a large non-taxable property the state fair grounds gifted by politicians to the University of Nebraska, so it still remains off the tax rolls Since we have lost the income from the State Fair and what UNL plans to do with it, is pure pie-in-the-sky, we tax payers will be carrying an even heavier burden in my county of residence.

So, what am I getting at, if this church wants to build in a commercial zone it at least should pay some sort of property tax! If it can show that they are the only ones interested in that property than perhaps they could have a tax free building then.
