Issues and the U.S. Constitution
Ohio Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses, Inc. sought to construct a church
building in a residential area in Lakewood, Ohio. Lakewood's residential zoning
prohibited churches in all residential districts. The Ohio Congregation brought
suit challenging the ordinance as unconstitutional and a breach of the freedom
of exercise clause of the constitution. What result?
Response: Analyze several of your peers’ postings and identify some key
challenges to the ordinance. What, if any, aspects of the ordinance are
unconstitutional? Respond to, at least,
two of your peers identifying possible amendments to the ordinance. What, if
any, zoning issues might the Lakewood residents raise to prohibit the
construction of the church?
