At the September 1st meeting of the McHenry County Board, two nuns from the Fraternite of Notre Dame read a list of religious zoning decisions that previous County Boards have made.
read prior zoning decisions by the McHenry County Board concerning religious organizations.
I had hoped that I would get them in a format in which they could be searched by computer, but I didn’t received them in the correct format.
Nevertheless, below you can read them.
You will see the County Board District, the township, the name of the church and the number of votes by which the zoning was passed.
All that is missing is the date of the votes.
There is a Federal law called the Religious Land Use Protection Act passed in 2000, under which I believe the Fraternite of Notre Dame will sue in Federal Court.
[In fact, I met a potential appellate court attorney who was following the case at this year’s Family PAC Cruise.]
The meeting where the County Board decision will be rendered starts at 7 PM tonight.
The time for public comment ended at the last meeting.
Discussion will be limited to County Board members tonight.
