Regulating Hate Through Zoning

Regulating Hate Through Zoning
Using the national headline story of the hate group that sought a permit to set up shop in an old Lutheran church in Murdock, Minnesota as a backdrop, we will cover the legal issues municipality must consider if they find themselves in this situation.  In a back-and-forth Q & A style format, we will discuss First Amendment implications, additional RLUIPA concerns if the hate group says it is a religious organization, preparing for potential litigation, and best land use practices generally to mitigate the issue without litigation.

What will you learn?

  • How the First Amendment intersects with land use decisions
  • The additional risks in land use decisions involving a religious organization
  • Litigation strategies if the municipality denies a permit or variance to a hate group
  • Other ways a municipality can create a welcoming atmosphere even if a hate group moves in

Who should attend?

  • Attorneys and other professionals who work in municipal and government law
  • Attorneys and other professionals who work in land use/ zoning law
  • Attorneys and other professionals who litigate against government entities

The registration rate is $75 for DRI members and $150 for non-members.
