New Life Church, the student ministry housed in a former sorority on Washtenaw Avenue, is considering its options, including a lawsuit, after the Ann Arbor Planning Commission denied a large addition to the property.
The church may consider arguing its case partially on grounds of religious discrimination, it seems:
The objections to the New Life project “has had a clear undercurrent of religious animus,” Hayes says in a Nov. 4 letter to the Planning Commission. The church has argued that because it serves a largely student population, it needs to be near the university, and that there are other institutional buildings of similar size on New Life’s block.
