NOTICE

CONSISTENT WITH THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION AND THE RELIGIOUS
LAND USE AND INSTITUTIONALIZED PERSONS ACT OF 2000, THE COUNTY OF
HENRICO DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE ON THE BASIS OF RELIGION IN THE
APPLICATION OF ITS LAWS, POLICIES, OR PROCEDURES, INCLUDING THE
APPLICATION OF ITS LAND USE REGULATIONS AND ZONING LAWS.

Under RLUIPA, no government, including the County of Henrico, may apply its zoning or land use laws in a manner that imposes a substantial burden on the religious exercise of a person, including a religious assembly or institution. RLUIPA also provides that no government, including the County of Henrico, may apply a land use regulation in a manner that treats a religious assembly or institution (a church, for example) on less than equal terms than a nonreligious institution or assembly (a day care center or movie theater). Finally, RLUIPA provides that no government, including the County of Henrico, may impose or implement a land use regulation in a manner that discriminates against a religious assembly or institution.

If you believe that the County of Henrico, or any other local government or
municipality, has discriminated against you in the implementation of its zoning or land use
laws, please contact the United States Department of Justice at

(202) 514-4713
