By Roland F. Chase
The new Third Edition will let you easily answer every zoning question that
can arise in your Rhode Island practice, with clear, plain-English explanations
backed up by thousands of detailed citations.
The Third Edition has been comprehensively updated and includes
expert analysis of many new cutting-edge topics, including attorney fee awards
under the Anti-SLAPP law and the Equal Access to Justice Act; protection under Noerr-Pennington for
developers who face zoning objections raised merely to delay projects; new laws
requiring e-mail notice whenever a zoning ordinance is adopted or amended; a
Supreme Court case striking down all content-based sign restrictions (even a
temporary church directional sign!); required zoning provisions for affordable
housing and persons with disabilities; new rules for religious uses, cell
towers, zoning certificates, public utilities; and much more!
