12/18/2017: Hunt Valley Presbyterian Church challenges conditions placed on approval
A fourth congregation has filed a lawsuit against Baltimore County, claiming the county's land-use rules limit religions practice. . . . The suit, filed Dec. 13 in U.S. District Court, says the county's "burdensome and discriminatory land use regulation... has required the Church to limit its ministry in ways that restrict the free exercise of its religious beliefs and practices." The church said it was trying to build a facility on Beaver Dam Road, but the county's Board of Appeals required the church to give two days' notice of any unscheduled activities to area residents, who "oppose the expansion," according to the lawsuit. . . . The county also "imposed another condition regarding water runoff that is essentially impossible to comply with," said the suit.
