On November 3, we reported that My Father’s House Ministry, Inc. (Church) sued Delanco Township, New Jersey after denial of the Church’s application for a use variance . (See our November 3 post). Based on the parties stipulation, the court issued a Consent Order Preliminarily Enjoining Delanco Township from preventing the Church from using the property it rents as a religious assembly. The Consent Order requires that the Church members park only in its existing parking lot and not along the adjacent, main thoroughfare.
The Consent Order does not resolve the merits of the case. It may indicate, however, that the parties are willing to work together and negotiate a solution that would accommodate all parties.
