Prop2 Class 17: Zoning II

March 19th, 2013

Today we continue talking about zoning, and focus on non-conforming uses, variances, special exceptions, and other ways of making zoning codes more flexible. The lecture notes are here, and the live chat is here.

And on the topic of zoning of adult book stores, see this case where the New Jersey Supreme Court case held that it was unconstitutional for a town in New Jersey to ban strip clubs because patrons could go to a strip-club in nearby Staten Island. I swear, I didn’t make this up.
