New York

A city did not violate the constitutional right of a church to exercise its religion by restricting the size of the church's' exterior sign to twenty square feet, ruled a New York court. "It is wholly appropriate," concluded the court, "to impose limitations on a church property and its accessory uses when reasonably related to the general welfare of the community, including the community's interest in preserving its appearance." Lakeshore Assembly of God Church v. Village Board, 508 N.Y.S.2d 819 (1986).
